Climate-Smart Agriculture Papers: new book answers decade-old questions
The book features previously undocumented scientific evidence that could help expand the scale of climate-smart agriculture.
For nearly ten years, climate-smart agriculture has been promoted as a way to address the twin challenges of climate change and food security, yet many basic questions remain unanswered.
To answer the questions, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security, World Agroforestry other partners mobilized researchers and practitioners from 48 institutions into an ambitious data-leakage endeavour, The Climate-Smart Agriculture Papers.
The mission was clear: to release previously undocumented scientific evidence that could help practitioners increase the scale of climate-smart agriculture. The result: a 323-page, free-download book with 36 accompanying graphical notes, showing ways to stimulate agricultural transformation under growing climate risks.
The preparation of the book was supported by UK Aid through Vuna.
