The 2017 Global Alliance for Climate Smart Agriculture (GACSA) Annual Forum focused on multi-stakeholder efforts to promote climate-smart agricultural practices that address the agricultural implications of climate change in the diverse regions and ecosystems of the world.
Mark Holderness, GFAR Executive Secretary, was invited to deliver the conference-closing remarks. He warned that climate change is already upon us and called for immediate actions, in which all must play their part, to ensure our ability to feed and nourish humanity through resilient and sustainable systems and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the sector. Using GFAR's collective action principles as a basis, Dr. Holderness called on all those concerned with the future of agriculture to urgently engage with wider society as a collective movement for change, working together through concrete actions to tackle these "wicked” and complex problems that no one can resolve by themselves.
