Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme
Community for Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture
©FAO/Hoang Dinh Nam Welcome to the Community for Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture. This Community of Practice, launched by the MICCA Programme, provides a network for practitioners, civil society organizations, national policy decision-makers and private sector working on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture. The Community facilitates the development and adoption of sustainable mitigation practices currently being used in agricultural production systems in different parts of the world.
The Community of practice serves to:
Online learning events October 2014:
|Gender and Climate-Smart Agriculture|
|Agroforestry, food security and climate change|
“I particularly liked the participatory engagement of the community for climate change mitigation in agriculture in deciding what they should learn. That is great!” - Member, Malawi
The learning events are a series of online webinars carried out by the Community of Practice, facilitated by MICCA. Each learning event takes place over a period of two to three weeks and gathers professionals, practitioners, and institutions to discuss issues related to climate change and agriculture. Through this, the Community of Practice has grown to more than 1800 members from universities, research centres, civil society organizations, national ministries, private corporations and other inter-developmental institutions, originating from more than 100 countries.
“It is important for scientists working on local adaptation mechanisms to climate change (...) to compare notes, share information, and learn from progress made in other regions of the world. The establishment of a network focusing on climate smart agriculture will facilitate the advancement of achieving food security in most developing countries.” - Survey Participant
The Community’s members communicate via its Discussion Group ('Development Group' or DGroup’). The DGroup allows them to exchange experiences, questions and advice with each other individually or in discussion threads. They can also benefit from the moderation and support provided by the Community’s co-ordination team. We want the DGroup to become an active forum in which practical and technical issues relating to mitigation in agriculture can be addressed.
