“It’s time to scale up proven climate risk management solutions for Africa’s farmers said Bruce Campbell and the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) research team in their latest blog post. Here is the CCAFS team on the importance of FARMD, and the need to address the knowledge gap on the nexus climate change and risk management:
“The Forum for Agricultural Risk Management in Development (FARMD) was created in 2010 to address this need and build a network of risk management practitioners. Today, FARMD is a vibrant knowledge-sharing platform and community of practitioners, holding frequent webinars and annual conferences. In its 2014 annual conference, to be held November 4-5, FARMD will examine the nexus between climate change and agricultural risks in sub-Saharan Africa, seeking to fill an important knowledge gap and improve understanding on the topic.”
