Wednesday 13 December 2017 saw the official launch in Rome of the Agrisource platform during the FAO congress of the GACSA (Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture).
Agrisource, a platform to drive solutions for agriculture faced with climate change
How can greenhouse gas emissions be mitigated? How can agriculture adapt to climate change while ensuring the resilience of our food systems?
Agrisource aims to federate a collaborative community to generate joint responses to these issues, linked to the conditions in different regions.
Under the concept of innovation, Agrisource integrates the advances in practices achieved by different communities: Climate-Smart Agriculture, agroecology or carbon sequestration initiatives such as 4 per 1000.
The services offered by Agrisource
- A mapping of projects to achieve concrete solutions,
- A social network for exchanges of views between professionals,
- A directory of all the actors involved,
- A library of documentation relative to ongoing innovations in the areas of attenuation and adaptation to climate change.
An open platform, free of charge
Agrisource is an online open platform that is totally free of charge. Its joint development by INRAE/CIRAD has been funded in the context of the Climate-Smart Agriculture Booster programme by Climate-KIC, the largest public-private partnership working on climate change.
This project is being managed by Suzanne Reynders and Marc Nougier from INRAE and Jean-Baptiste Laurent from CIRAD.
Developed by INRAE and CIRAD, VINEAS provides methodological support to vine and wine stakeholders wishing to research and share knowledge and initiatives on climate change issues.
