At CGIAR, one of our research focus is on integrated food production systems that link closely with the work on sustainable healthy diets in the Transformational Agroecology Initiative and the Systems Transformation Action Area.

In a deep dive science seminar hosted by CIMMYT's Excellence in Science Strategy under the One CGIAR Research and Innovation Strategy, scientists from WorldFish and CIMMYT will come together to share success stories on designing and implementing integrated production practices, particularly on climate smart aquaculture technologies, rice-fish innovations and wheat systems for food security and climate resilience.


Opening Remarks:

Bram Govaerts, Director General a.i. (Secretary General and Chief Executive Officer), CIMMYT

Mohammed, Essam (WorldFish), Director General (a.i), WorldFish & Senior Director, Aquatic Food Systems, CGIAR


Invited speakers:
