The workshop will focus on applications and methodological advancements.

(i)    to discuss adaptation and mitigation options of agricultural systems under climate change

(ii)   to study and assess regional approaches implementing adaptation and mitigation options in agriculture

(iii)  to advance policy implications of climate change for agriculture and food security
