The 5th Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture 2019

Theme: Transforming food systems under a changing climate

Agricultural development can be slow and uneven, often not reaching the people who are most vulnerable and in pockets of deep, entrenched poverty. It is further hindered by climate change, which disproportionally affects agriculture and threatens the achievement of SDG targets on food security and poverty. In order to achieve food security, increase productivity, alleviate poverty among rural communities, build resilience to climate change and other stresses, and reduce agricultural emissions, a complete transformation in agriculture is needed over the next decade, going beyond business as usual and piecemeal short-term projects.

The overarching theme of the 5th conference, ‘Transforming food systems under a changing climate’, takes cognizance of the need for transformation and aims to build the knowledge base needed to support the transformation required.

The conference will focus on 6 interlinked sub-themes, which are the key elements of agricultural transformation :

  1. Strong farmer and consumer organizations and networking
  2. Digitally enabled climate-informed services
  3. Climate-resilient and low-emission practices and technologies
  4. Innovative finance to leverage public and private sector investments
  5. Reshaping supply chains, food retail, marketing and procurement
  6. Gender equality, capacity and enabling policy and institutions

Global conference: 3rd World Irrigation Forum

The triennial World Irrigation Forum (WIF) aims to bring together all the stakeholders involved in irrigation of multi-disciplines and all scales, including the policymakers, experts, research institutions, non-governmental organizations and farmers. It provide a platform for the world irrigation community and interested development professionals to find solutions to problems plaguing the irrigated agriculture, in time of depleting freshwater resources as a result of global warming and climate change.

The World Irrigation Forum stimulates and promotes multidisciplinary discussions towards sustainable solution to water management in agriculture through:

  • Exchange of latest irrigation and drainage policies, practices, innovations and technologies;
  • Exploring and formulating concrete inter-disciplinary proposals;
  • Development of liaison/ collaboration among various national/ international institutions/ organizations/ private sector working for irrigated agriculture; and
  • Advocacy for political commitments

WorldFish HQ events: SPAITS Project Inception Workshop

Scaling Systems and Partnerships for Accelerating the Adoption of Improved Tilapia Strains by Small-Scale Fish Farmers (SPAITS) Project Inception Workshop

Global demand for seafood continues to rise, driven by population growth, higher incomes, urbanization and increasing preference for seafood protein. As capture fisheries production has reached its limits, the growth of aquaculture is critical for meeting the increasing demand for fish. One of the bottlenecks constraining sustainable aquaculture development is the lack of improved strains of fish.

To date, aquaculture in developing countries is still largely based on unimproved fish strains, which are genetically similar or inferior to wild counterparts. This results in aquaculture with poor growth rate, high mortality and production costs. Genetically improved seeds of fish and other aquatic species are essential for increasing productivity and improving socioeconomic performance of aquaculture production.

As part of the sustainable aquaculture research of the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH), the BMZ/GIZ funded SPAITS project aims to accelerate the dissemination of improved tilapia and carp strains to smallholder farmers in Africa and Asia, and provide feedback to research on new genetic traits in tilapia that could further benefit smallholders in developing countries.

Dr Nhoung Tran, WorldFish research leads specialize in fish supply and demand modeling and climate change with his research teams will be coordinating the two-days workshop from 14th to 15th February 2019.The goal of workshops is to provide attendees with a focused and in-depth platform to develop project workplans, including project sites, timelines, deliverables and activities of each of the four outputs of the SPAITS project, refine the proposed methodologies and develop a common understanding of the project, and its different activities, expected outcomes, and the individual roles and responsibilities in achieving the project’s deliverables.
