Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture
October 8, 2019 - October 10, 2019$250 – $600
Since the term climate-smart agriculture (CSA) was coined in 2010, the biannual global science conferences on CSA have emerged as the key global forum for scientific exchange to underpin CSA implementation.
The conference will build on the lessons from the previous conferences, with the overarching theme, “Transforming food systems under a changing climate,” and will be held for the first time in Asia.
CIMMYT researchers will be participating in the conference and speaking on these topics:
