Climate change is already happening. Without taking immediate action to deliver innovative research findings to farmers, climate change will be devastating to food security, particularly in the developing world.
Such organizations as CIMMYT are here to help. Over 90 percent of our work is dedicated to overcoming the challenges associated with climate change in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Working with hundreds of partners, CIMMYT develops combined packages of solutions, including developing improved seeds and introducing new practices that allow smallholder farmers to adapt to climate change, mitigating environmental impact, while increasing food production.
Our research and experience working with farmers sends a clear message to policymakers: it is possible to create advanced farming systems in the developing world that meet global challenges, but only with further investment in research and by adopting new approaches on a vast scale.
