Gordon Conway gave a very well received speech “We are all in the same boat: food production and food security under threat by climate change”at the opening ceremony of the 3rd Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture, held from March 16 to 18, 2015 in Montpellier.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that human-induced climate change is affecting us all albeit in different ways. We all have to adapt and although the practices may be different there are common principles. We also all have a role to play in mitigating the effects, even if our responsibilities differ. For example, the enormity of land degradation in both developed and developing countries requires that we invest in climate smart soils. Sustainable Intensification also offers a framework for addressing these complex global challenges. Maybe there are other solutions and lessons to draw?
