Climate change will have far-reaching consequences for agriculture and natural resources: demanding a response that integrates food and nutrition security, adaptation and mitigation, and puts greatest investment towards poor people whose agriculture-dependent livelihoods are most at risk (Porter et al. 2014; Kelley et al. 2015;Wiebe et al. 2015). The overall purpose of CCAFS is to marshal the science and expertise of CGIAR and partners to catalyse positive change towards climate-smart agriculture (CSA), food systems and landscapes, and position CGIAR to play a major role in bringing to scale practices, technologies and institutions that enable agriculture to meet triple goals of food security, adaptation and mitigation. Climate change is now mainstreamed throughout the CGIAR portfolio, so CCAFS’ role is to integrate across CRPs, providing the tools and advice on priorities in different contexts, making the links to the climate science community, and representing CGIAR in climate-related policy processes.
