Food Security and Agriculture

Droughts, floods, changing rainfall patterns, and other extreme weather events put vulnerable communities at risk. With improved access to climate information, new technologies, and advanced land and water management techniques, vulnerable communities are receiving the tools they need to feed their families today, tomorrow and into the future. This service line addresses the risks of climate change across the value chain – especially agricultural products that are important to food and nutrition security. The main areas of work include pre-production and input management; capacity to provide and apply climate information services; production and diversified integrated systems; and post-production offerings including the provision of financial services and access to markets.
