Background/Why the call? • Climate change (CC) is an increasingly important issue in policy discuss at different policy levels- • Much info about challenges and impacts of cc on agriculture • CC impacts on food security now, no longer a hypothetical future. • Worsen vulnerability of food insecure populations • Distribution of impact- poorer communities, groups with lowest capacity to adapt, but have highest need for food security (many in ACP) • Long term impact is costly- compromise of agriculture and ecosystems e.g. adaptation costs @ several $$$$ billion/year (Nelson et al. 2009; Wheeler and Tiffin 2009)
  3. Evidence  and  case  studies  on  CSA   • So  much  informa-on  about  challenges  of  cc  &  impacts  on   agriculture,  ...but  less  on  solu-ons  to  the  challenges     • From  “searching”  to  “finding”   • Sample  of  ques-ons  from  devpt  agencies,  policy  makers   – Where  are  the  solu-ons?     – Which  ones  have  been  successfully  implemented?     – Where?  To  what  extent?  What  are  the  impacts?   – Show  me  the  evidence!   • Global  Donor  PlaIorm  mee-ng-­‐  -me  about  T,  T,  T  ?  
  4. 1. Proven solutions the help farmers respond to the challenges of cc; any hidden rare gems in ACP?: • Farmers’ practices • Policies & mechanisms for financing climatic risks • Successful deployment of ICT tools 2. Understand their impacts- where, extent, drivers? 3. Scaling up to wider farmer communities and various stakeholders Objec6ves  of  the  Call

  6. • Different screening phases- content & technical compliance • Panel from EU & ACP regions-technical & user perspectives including farmers working on climate change • Huge interests to support proven solutions- CTA new strategic thrust, donors, GACSA • This week... Reality check- show us the evidence? Where  are  we  in  the  process?  
  7. • Progress  of  case  studies  &  peer-­‐review  to  highlight  their    prac-cal  relevance  as  cc  solu-ons  for  smallholder  farmers   • Iden-fy  drivers  of  success/adop-on  &  lessons  for  scaling  up    the  most  promising  cases   • Iden-fy  key  communica-on  materials  (synthesis  &  book)  and    communica-on  forums  (GFIA,  CoP21,  etc)  to  inform    stakeholders  given  CTA  new  accredita-on  in  UNFCCC   • Iden-fy  key  partners,  type  of  partnership  arrangements  &    resource  mobiliza-on  to  scale-­‐up  the  most  promising  &    proven  cases   The  next  three  days
