Food security and climate change can be addressed together by transforming agriculture and adopting practices that are "climate-smart"

A number of production systems are already being used by farmers and food producers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to climate change, and reduce vulnerability. This website provides examples of many of these production systems considered as "climate-smart" and will be constantly updated to highlight additional examples and lessons learned from around the world.

The production systems included in this website are based on the examples of production systems included in the publication 'Climate-Smart' Agriculture: Policies, Practices and Financing for Food Security, Adaptation, and Mitigation.
