Transforming food systems under a changing climate

Ana María Loboguerrero, Head of Global Policy Research at CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will present an initiative for transforming food systems under a changing climate. This initiative envisions a world in which all people, including future generations, are well-nourished and food secure, achieved through transformed food systems that are sustainably managing current and future stresses, climatic and non-climatic. These food systems will be building on the capacities and empowerment of people to strengthen their resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters while contributing to emissions reductions and/or capturing of GHG, to a sustainable land-use and to the protection of ecosystems, considering efforts along the food value chain.

Ana Maria will set out a framework to promote radical change in value chains, and transformation of how ecosystems are maintained, and on how policies, human behaviour, financing, and the political economy can fundamentally solve the most challenging problems with respect to food, agriculture and climate change.
