Food and farming in the UN climate talks

logo_glfWhat do the UN Climate talks mean for food and farming? The global research program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and partners are sharing knowledge and exchanging experiences at the UN Climate Talks from 1-12 December and during the Global Landscape Forum, 6-7 December 2014 in Lima, Peru.

Of particular interest may be the meeting on 6 December, 17:30 – 19:00 –  The role of genetic diversity, traditional knowledge and restoration of native plants in climate adaptation and resilience. Speakers include Alejandro Argumedo from Andes, and Marleni Ramirez from Bioversity International.

CCAFS have produced a range of materials on agriculture and climate change and have prepared an info note for the current Peru meeting, which you can download here.

You can also follow CCAFS at the Peru Meeting and join the conversation online by following their CO20 blog@cgiarclimate on twitter, on Facebook and Google+.
