2nd Agriculture and Climate Change Conference:Climate ready resource use-efficient crops to sustain food and nutritional security 26 - 28 March 2017 Sitges, Spain
Maintaining crop production to feed a growing population during a period of climate change is the greatest challenge we face as a species. The increased crop yields during the last century and especially the Green Revolution, were brought about through breeding for increased harvest index and disease resistance, as well as by using more irrigation water and agrochemicals. Improved cultivars were adopted readily during this period of relative climate stability. While genetic gains continue, albeit at reduced rates, productivity is in decline in many regions. Given the multiple challenges of climate change, reduced water supplies, and declining soil fertility in many regions, new approaches to produce climate resilient crops are desperately needed. The 2nd Agriculture and Climate Change Conference will focus on the likely impact of climate change on crop production and explore approaches to maintain and increase crop productivity into the future.

CTA : call for proposals " Documentation of proven practices, tools or policies that promote resilience and help farmers to address the challenges posed by climate change"
The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), a joint international institution of the European Union (EU) and African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States, is launching a call for proposals to promote strategies, practicies and policies aiming to increase productivity and to enhance agriculture's resilience to climate change in ACP region.

Closing date (Outline Proposals): 16:00 UK local time (GMT+1), Tuesday 15 July 2014
Outline proposals are invited for a new funding opportunity as part of the Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) research programme funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and NERC. FCFA is a £20m international, interdisciplinary programme to advance scientific understanding and prediction of African climate variability and change to inform medium-term adaptation decisions (5-40 years), and develop the knowledge, data and tools to better integrate this science into decision making today.
