The third Global Science Conference on Climate -Smart Agriculture (CSA)

09/09/2014

"The third Global Science Conference on Climate -Smart Agriculture (CSA) is part of a process initiated in October 2010 in The Hague by the Government of the Netherlands. The objective was to simultaneously address the themes of agriculture, food security and climate change. This initiative quickly led to the structuring of two parallel dynamics, respectively on the scientific concept itself of CSA on the one hand and on public policies to accompany the process on the other hand. Two scientific conferences have been held so far, at the University of Wageningen in 2011 and at the University of California, Davis in 2013. Montpellier 2015 is the third of these conferences.

Two conferences on public policy were held in Hanoi (2012) and in Johannesburg (2013). These have led to the process known as the "CSA Alliance" whose goal is to accelerate the implementation of climate- smart agriculture in identifying promising approaches and encouraging the incorporation of principles in the corresponding policies and public funding mechanisms. The Alliance must be formally launched at the United Nations summit on climate change in September 2014 in New York. These two series of conferences are complementary and both stressed the importance of the link between science and public policy".
