Global commission charts pathway for achieving food security in face of climate change
Date:11/16/2011

limate shocks, strategies to moderate food price fluctuations and safety net programs. Education, health and nutrition programs provide much needed pathways out of food insecurity.

"Building resilience to climate change must be deeply rooted in social systems beyond agriculture," said the Commissioner Dr Rita Sharma, Secretary of India's National Advisory Council. In India, for example, a program to guarantee rural employment is being used as a strategy to boost income and therefore reduce vulnerability.

"Global donors can help promote better climate change risk management through a more coordinated, multi-benefit approach," said Mexican Commissioner Dr Adrian Fernndez Bremauntz, Senior Consultant at the ClimateWorks Foundation. The Commission calls for national and international agricultural development policies to prioritise boosting productive assets and infrastructure.

Better information for integrated decision-making

"We are already in the business of managing significant risk and navigating trade-offs," said U.S. Commissioner Professor Molly Jahn of the University of Madison-Wisconsin. "Agricultural greenhouse emissions are undeniably a significant issue. We need to innovate approaches to deal with this, but not at the expense of food production by poor farmers today." The Commission highlights the importance of improved monitoring and modelling to support integrated decision-making for economic growth, agricultural productivity, poverty reduction and long-term environmental sustainability.

"If we are armed with real-time, spatially explicit information about land uses, markets and human populations, we can do a much better job of meeting our needs and taking care of the planet," said Commissioner Dr Carlos Nobre of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. "This means better capacity to forecast crises as well as testing specific interventions and scaling up the ones that work."
