14 – 17 June 2016. Rome. GACSA Annual Forum: Climate-Smart Agriculture in Action. GACSA’s
ambitious future is based upon supporting and inspiring action. Farmers, fishers, foresters, and ranchers are at the center of this action, and therefore GACSA is devoting its Annual Forum to showcasing climate-smart agriculture in action.

GACSA was launched in 2014 at the UN Climate Summit, and is a voluntary alliance of partners addressing the challenges facing food security and agriculture under a changing climate. The GACSA Facilitation Unit is hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO).

Extract of the agenda:
