Overview:

The NAP-Ag webinar on Climate Information Services in Adaptation Planning for Agriculture will provide insights into the role of Climate Information Services (CIS) in planning for adaptation in agricultural sectors. Country case studies and extended exploration of best practices will create a strong learning environment for country-to-country exchange on institutional arrangements, and gaps in Climate Information Services for the implementation and formulation of National Adaptation Plans. This webinar is a follow up to the March 2017 peer-to-peer exchange on “Effective Climate Information Services for Agriculture in ASEAN.”
