Scientists gather at UC Davis to discuss climate change

Scientists and policymakers will gather March 20-22 at UC Davis to grapple with the threats of climate change for global agriculture and to recommend science-based actions to slow its effects.

The Climate-Smart Agriculture Global Science Conference builds on a 2011 international meeting held in the Netherlands. The gathering was planned in coordination with the World Bank,

"Climate change, which brings severe weather events and more subtle but equally menacing temperature changes, presents unprecedented challenges to the global community," said UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi.

Topics will include the implications of research for improving agricultural management and development. The conference will conclude with participants developing and endorsing a declaration on science-based policies and actions that can mitigate climate change and encourage adaptation.
