Impact of climate change on food systems - side event at the FAO Science & Innovation Forum

A recent systems-based approach to tackling climate change and health issues, from the global InterAcademy Partnership and its regional academy networks, examined how science can guide innovation, policy and practice for climate mitigation and adaptation. Among adverse climate change effects are those mediated by multiple impacts on food production and, consequently, on health and livelihoods. In this two hour online side event of the FAO Science & Innovation Forum outputs from the global assessment and specifically from Africa will be presented to exemplify the diverse challenges and opportunities to identify and implement solutions, integrated between agriculture and other sectors, at all levels of governance. 

The webinar will take place on 13 Oct, 2-4 PM CEST. To attend, please register here.

The event is co-organized by IAP, the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf).
