About the Event
This seminar is the second in a series of events on incorporating environment and climate change as key elements of food security and agriculture programs. Feed the Future leadership will continue the discussion started with the first event by emphasizing the importance of climate and environment considerations to achieving food security objectives. Speakers from the environment and development community will follow, sharing experiences from food security programs in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa that illustrate the linkages between long-term sustainability of food systems; resilience of the poor; and soil, water and natural resource protection.
About the Series
The Feed the Future Guide recognizes that "[e]nvironmental degradation and climate change are critical cross-cutting issues that can affect the sustainability of investments in agricultural development and food security, impede long-term economic growth, and adversely affect livelihoods and well being." This event series, "Integrating Climate Change and Natural Resource Management into Feed the Future," will seek to articulate some of the challenges and opportunities that integration of these issues poses, and present successful program approaches and tools for working across the disciplines of climate change, NRM, and food security. The series will share relevant tools, lessons learned, and recommend best practices in the areas of soil, water, nutrition, and climate change resilience and will seek to raise the profile of these cross-cutting issues and their critical linkages to food security.
