The effects of climate change, if not mitigated, will result in drastic global changes in the future. A report of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on climate change stated the serious impacts on the earth of global warming and warns people that if the present level of fossil fuel consumption (e.g., oil and coal) continues, the average temperature of the earth will rise by up to 6.4℃ by the end of the 21st century (2001~2100) and the sea level will rise by 59cm.
Today, more and more organizations and companies are looking at the possibility of implementing climate-smart interventions to improve their production processes and lower their carbon emissions.
This webinar session thus, aims to provide examples of climate-smart agricultural interventions that help reduce carbon emissions while increasing farm productivity and livelihood returns. It targets to identify concrete steps towards integrating sustainability metrics in value chain project development and using these metrics to improve the capacities of the companies and their assisted communities to adapt and grow despite longer term stresses.
