PRESS RELEASE - February 2015
With the world population expected to reach around 9 billion by 2050 and the effects of climate change already being felt, we are faced with three major challenges: food security, climate change adaptation, and its limitations.
These three challenges are the main focus of Climate-Smart Agriculture.
Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) aims to encourage and support farmers, countries and other stakeholders in the implementation of policies that:
- sustainably increase agricultural productivity and incomes in order to achieve food security and development objectives;
- strengthen the resilience and adaptation of agriculture and food systems to climate change;
- reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and increase carbon uptake.
The 3rd Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture will be held in Montpellier, France from the 16th to 18th of March, 2015.
This major event aims to provide a deeper understanding and scientific knowledge on climate-smart agriculture.
The conference will draw up agenda for research, inform policymakers and propose actionable steps for the future.

The 3rd Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture will lead to two key international scientific events to be organized in France. The first, "Our Common Future under Climate Change," to be held at UNESCO in Paris from the 7th to 10th, July 2015, will address all aspects of climate change. The second key event is the 2015 Climate Conference (21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC), which will be held from November 30th to December 11th at Paris-Le Bourget.
The 3rd global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture is organized by Cirad, Inra, IRD and Agropolis International in close partnership with CGIAR, the University of Wageningen, the University of California (Davis) and FAO.
The conference is financially supported by the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood and Forestry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Department for International Development, the region of Languedoc-Roussillon, the Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, LabEx Agro and CeMEB.
