Platform Dialogue Food security and climate change

Platform Dialogue Food security and climate change


7 June. Stockholm/Sweden. Sida Offices. This first Platform dialogue kindled great interest among the ARD community. In addition to the 45 attendees present in Stockholm, over 300 participants tuned into the event via live webstream — immediately reaching the maximum capacity that had been set for the event.

Marion Guillou (CCAFS Commissioner) presented the Commission’s Report Achieving Food Security in the Face of Climate Change, to which Agnes Andersson Djurnefeldt (Lund University) responded with findings from her research. Elywn Grainger-Jones (IFAD) and David Howlett (DFID) presented the climate change initiatives from the perspectives of a multilateral and bilateral institution respectively.

Speakers commented and built on each other’s work, eliciting many and diverse questions from both the onsite and virtual audience. The recording of the presentations and discussion is available below, as well as powerpoint slides and a short summary report of the discussion.
