The 2022 NARO-FFTC hybrid symposium on climate change and food system is now open for registration

 

Actions to tackle climate change are urgently required in all sectors of the world. Agriculture and food systems, which are very vulnerable to the effects of climate change, play an essential role in the sustainable development of their region.

On October 17-19, the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO), Japan and FFTC will jointly organize a hybrid symposium on “Climate Change and Food System – synergies of adaptation and mitigation, and advanced utilization of climate information for sustainable and climate-resilient agriculture” in partnership with DOST-PCAARRD, and co-sponsored by OECD-CRP.

The symposium is divided into three sessions:

  1. Plenary session which consists of messages from the WGII contribution to IPCC AR6;
  2. Session 1: Adaptations to climate change in the food system; enhancing synergies and breaking trade-offs between adaptation, mitigation, and ecosystem; and
  3. Session 2: Impacts of climate change on small-scale agriculture in Asia and effective adaptation and mitigation using climate information services.

The symposium is now open for registration and is free of charge.
