The NUI Galway Plant & AgriBiosciences Research Centre (PABC) and the global Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) program will host an international Conference on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in the National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway) on Monday 24th April 2017.
The CCAFS global research programme is a collaboration amongst all 15 CGIAR Research Centers and is coordinated with the other CGIAR research programs (CRPs). The NUI Galway Plant and Agri-Biosciences Centre NUIG is a contributing partner to the CCAFS Research Program, and also runs the MScCCAFS masters degree program in collaboration with CCAFS.
The CCAFS 2017 conference will bring together some of the world’s leading experts in agricultural science, climate science, agro-environmental, economic and social sciences to identify and address the most important interactions, synergies and trade-offs between climate change and agriculture.
I will be presenting a poster on the 24th as one of the MSc CCAFS students. Updates on the conference and photos to come!
