Knowledge for better food systems

Call for papers and posters: The 4th Global Science Conference On Climate-Smart Agriculture, 28-30 November, Johannesburg South Africa

The 4th Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture (The 4th GSC-CSA) aims to bring science to bear on practical advances in scaling up climate smart agriculture.

It is the continuation of three scientific conferences that have been held so far (University of Wageningen in 2011; University of California, Davis in 2013 and in Montpellier in 2015). Africa under the custodianship of the NEPAD Agency is now hosting the 4th GSC-CSA from the 28th to 30th November, 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

There is growing attention to “climate-agriculture nexus” issues in national, regional and global policies and strategies. At global level, the SDGs and Paris Climate Agreement have explicitly highlighted the climate-agriculture and food systems nexus issues as key success factors in advancing the ultimate sustainable economic growth and inclusive development. The 4th Global SC-CSA brings together various key constituencies to interact – share, learn, build collaborations and alliances – with the aim to bring science and innovations to bear on policy, institutional and technological efforts in building agricultural and food systems that are climate smart.

The call for abstract is now open (posters and papers). Oral or Poster abstracts can be submitted until Friday, September 1, 2017. Abstract can be submitted in any of the following languages – English; French and Spanish. Accepted abstracts will be notified by the end of September 2017.
