Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change

21.03.2011
The Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change will identify what policy changes and actions are needed to help the world achieve sustainable agriculture in the face of climate change.

The Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change is an initiative of the CGIAR Research Program - Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security programme (CCAFS), with additional funding from the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development. The Commission will identify what policy changes and actions are needed to help the world achieve sustainable agriculture in the face of climate change.

Specifically, the Commission will focus on bringing together existing evidence on sustainable agriculture that contributes to food security and poverty reduction, and helps respond to climate change adaptation and mitigation goals.

The Commission commences its work in mid-February 2011 and will deliver its findings for use by decision makers on climate change and agriculture policies by December 2011.

Objectives of the Commission

The Commission will identify what policy changes and actions are needed now to help the world achieve sustainable agriculture that contributes to food security and poverty reduction, and helps respond to climate change adaptation and mitigation goals.

Details of the Commission's work, including research questions, focus regions, and more, will be available soon.

The Commissioners

The Commissioners have been chosen as eminent scientists with international reputations, who have a good understanding of policy processes at the national, regional and global level. The Commissioners represent all major regions of the world and have a wide range of scientific backgrounds in agriculture, climate, ecology, economics, trade and nutrition/health. See the link below for the full list of Commissioners.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
