Community for Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture

Welcome to the homepage of the Community for Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture. This Community of Practice, launched by the MICCA Programme in January 2012, provides a network for practitioners 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.
Our goals are:

  • making information about climate change mitigation in agriculture easily accessible for practitioners;
  • fostering knowledge-sharing and collaboration among practitioners;
  • supporting collective efforts to influence relevant policy areas; and
  • increasing the visibility of climate change mitigation in agriculture at a global level.

Activities of the Community of Practice

The Community of Practice of Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture organizes online webinars and learning events on a variety of climate-smart practices and climate change mitigation opportunities.

Our activities in October encouraged knowledge sharing around climate change mitigation in the fields of organic soils, as well as livestock systems.

An online webinarTowards climate responsible peatlands management took place on Thursday 3 October, 2013.

“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

Learning events

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 650 members from universities, research centres, civil society organizations, national ministries, private corporations and other inter-developmental institutions, originating from more than 60 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

Discussion Fora

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.
