As part of the release of USAID’s 2022-2030 Climate Strategy, Climatelinks is hosting two webinar series. The first series occurred in May 2022 and consisted of three weekly webinars to introduce a broad audience to USAID’s 2022-2030 Climate Strategy. The second series consists of four monthly deep dive webinars that started in June 2022 with a webinar highlighting Climate Finance. The second webinar in the deep dive webinar series will focus on Climate Smart Agriculture and will occur on July 28 from 9:00-10:30 AM EDT.
USAID aims to enable the improved climate resilience of 500 million people by 2030. With more than 193 million people already experiencing acute food insecurity, there is great urgency to help the broader community understand how Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) relates to and supports food security. As supplemental funds of over 600 million dollars are distributed to support food security in the midst of the Ukraine crisis, the time is ripe for sharing best practices and co-benefits of CSA approaches and developing food security programming that can help farmers adapt. This webinar will consider ways in which approaches to food security can be “climate proofed” and can contribute to USAID’s new Climate Strategy, highlighting important co-benefits that can advance other parts of the Climate Strategy in order to build resilient, prosperous, and equitable world with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. This webinar will offer insights into topics that relate to food security, including:
- Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) productivity;
- Innovative solutions USAID is using to reduce food loss and waste;
- Incorporating climate smart principles into humanitarian response; and
- Gender-responsive approaches in CSA
This webinar will be recorded.
