The Canada-UNDP Climate Change Adaptation Facility (CCAF) recently organized a side event a the GEF Assembly in Cancun, Mexico on 26 May, 2014 entitled "LDC Experiences Ensuring Food Security in a Changing Climate: Sharing Lessons and Looking Forward."  The side event, jointly supported by the Government of Canada and the UNDP, provided an opportunity for an exchange on what LDCs are doing to address the impacts of climate change on food security. The event focused on projects supported through the CCAF, which scales up or expands Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) projects in Cambodia, Cape Verde, Haiti, Mali, Niger and Sudan.  Several valuable lessons learned, substantiated by project-related experiences and insight, were shared during an interactive panel discussion.  For more information, including a summary of the key messages from the event, please see the attached summary.
