Bram Govaerts, CIMMYT Director General, promotes 5 adaptation measures that can transform global agri-food systems, making them more resilient to climate shocks to help vulnerable regions cope with diminishing yields and forced migrations.
Global science partnership promotes climate-smart pathways to address food security and climate crisisClimate adaptation and mitigation
As rising temperatures and water scarcities threaten food production and affecting global food security and livelihoods since last century, leading research organizations have joined efforts around solutions that can also benefit climate-threatened, staple food farming in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
Climate-food systems research at CIMMYT is informing the decisions of key actors from the scientific, development, and public policy communities.
Study explores how to reduce GHG emissions while supporting food security through nitrogen managementClimate adaptation and mitigation
Responses of yields and N₂O emissions to N inputs could be used to design appropriate N management strategies for addressing the dual challenge of food insecurity and climate crisis.
