The Obama administration announced a new program to provide solutions to address the effects of climate change on agriculture. The Global Alliance for Climate Smart Agriculture will help to improve food security in crop, livestock, and aquaculture systems around the world. The initiative will design new technologies and share information through new alliances.
According to a blog post on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s website, “The Alliance will advance a more inclusive, innovative, and evidence-based approach to food security. It will provide platforms for partners to collaborate on agricultural practices, make key investments, develop policies that empower producers to mitigate the impact of climate change and, through sustainable agriculture practices, contribute to a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.”
