About

The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security brings together some of the world's best researchers in agricultural science, climate science, environmental and social sciences to identify and address the most important interactions, synergies and trade-offs between climate change and agriculture. The program aims to address the increasing challenge of global warming and declining food security on agricultural practices, policies and measures through a strategic collaboration between CGIAR and Future Earth. 

CCAFS is an actor in the Coalition's Agriculture initiative.
