Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture to launch the Inaugural Global Climate-Smart Agriculture Summit
ABU DHABI
9 March 2015 - 11 March 2015


The Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) in partnership with the World Bank, NEPAD, CGIAR, Global Environmental Faculty (GEF), World Agroforestry Centre and the African Union will be hosting the inaugural Global Climate Smart - Agriculture (CSA) Summit in Abu Dhabi from the 9th to the 11th of March 2015. The summit will be launched under the theme "Promoting sustainability & agricultural resilience". Following the Global Alliance for Climate Smart Agriculture (GACSA) which was launched at the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September 2014, agriculture is now firmly part of the climate debate and GFIA 2015 in Abu Dhabi is an important stepping stone towards the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2015. Climate-Smart Agriculture will be at the heart of GFIA 2015, including keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops, innovation presentations, roundtable discussions and a large number of technologies in the exhibition.

The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) CEO Dr Lindiwe Majele Sibanda will be one of the speakers at the summit. The first session of the summit will start by interrogating the need for CSA under the topic "Why Climate-smart agriculture?" One of the sessions will be led by the African CSA Alliance (ACSA) and will outline the need for the universal adoption of CSA and the role that ACSA will play in this. Other sessions will look at Food losses and waste; Innovations and technologies for creating climate-smart urban food systems; Landscape Restoration and Agroforestry.
