The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is a strategic 10 -­‐ year partnership emerging from a new collaboration between the Consult ative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and the Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP). Through this collaboration CCAFS brings together strategic research in agricultural science development research climate science and earth syst em science to overcome the threats that a changing climate poses to food security rural li velihoods and the environment. This entails promoting more adaptable and resilient agriculture and food systems; mainstreaming climate variability and climate chan ge issues into development strategies and institutional agendas; enhancing peoples’ understanding of climate change issues; and ensuring that decisions on policies and actions are based on the best information and data. In order to meet the overall goal C CAFS has established four research themes: Adaptation to Progressive Climate Change; Adaptation through Managing Climate Risk; Pro -­‐ poor Climate Change Mitigation; and Integration for Decision Making. While the t hemes are global in character there is a co ncentrati on of effort i n five focus regions: the South Asia (with an initial focus on the Indo -­‐ Gangetic Plains) Southeast Asia West Africa East Africa and Latin America . Led by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) CCAFS taps into the collective expertise of all 15 CGIAR research centres and other thematic CGIAR research programs from around the world. CCAFS invol v es farmers policy makers donors and other stakeholders integrating their knowledge and needs into the tools and appro aches we develop.
