Climate Smart Agriculture 2015: Global Science Conference

Le Corum, Montpellier, France

Building Tomorrow’s Research Agenda and Bridging the Science-Policy Gap

The Global Science Conference on Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) will address:

  • Key research issues, gather CSA facts and figures from developing and developed countries and support a collaborative effort with broad social participation
  • Reducing the science-policy gap
  • Paving the road for future cooperation initiatives to be taken in terms of joint and collaborative scientific efforts.

Five Specific Objectives

  1. Updating the science basis.
  2. Showcasing key scenarios for agriculture and food systems: potential of CSA for answering the challenge of food security under climate change and early solutions, barriers and adoption parameters.
  3. Identifying priorities for early action to accelerate deployment of promising technologies, practices and approaches, with a particular emphasis on strengthening adaptation and application in developing countries.
  4. Interfacing with the CSA Alliance through the integration of key research issues that might arise from the meetings organized by the Alliance in 2014.
  5. Designing a roadmap to move forward and identify an action plan for strengthening the CSA global scientific community and improve the science-policy dialogue in coordination with the forthcoming CSA Alliance.
