Climate-Smart Agriculture on a Journey to Durban

Agriculture possesses huge untapped potential to reduce poverty, bolster food security, adapt to climate change, reduce pressure on natural resources, and in many places lower greenhouse gas emissions. To realize this potential, farmers, fishers, and pastoralists must urgently become "climate-smart," especially in the developing world, which will be hit hardest by climate change impacts.

The third annual Agriculture and Rural Development Day will highlight options by which rural people can achieve that end. To be held in parallel with the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the event aims to inspire both high-level commitment and grassroots action.

Africa is a hotbed of climate-smart innovation, providing the ideal setting for this year's Agriculture and Rural Development Day. Across the continent, rural communities are experimenting with options for achieving climate-change adaptation and mitigation through more sustainable crop production, livestock rearing and management of soils, water, fish, forests, agroforestry species, and other biodiversity.
