CCAFS brings together the world’s best researchers in agricultural science, climate science, environmental, and social sciences to identify and address the most important interactions, synergies, and trade-offs between climate change and agriculture.

The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will address the increasing challenge of global warming and declining food security on agricultural practices, policies, and measures through a strategic collaboration between CGIAR and Future Earth. CCAFS will define and implement a uniquely innovative and transformative research program that addresses agriculture in the context of climate variability, climate change, and uncertainty about future climate conditions.

CGIAR is a global agriculture research partnership for a food secure future. Its science is carried out by the 15 research centers who are members of the CGIAR in collaboration with hundreds of partner organizations.

CCAFS is a partner of Future Earth.
