A recent systems-based approach to tackling climate change and health issues, from the global InterAcademy Partnership and its regional academy networks, examined how science can guide innovation, policy and practice for climate mitigation and adaptation. Among adverse climate change effects are those mediated by multiple impacts on food production and, consequently, on health and livelihoods. In this two hour online side event of the FAO Science & Innovation Forum outputs from the global assessment and specifically from Africa were presented to exemplify the diverse challenges and opportunities to identify and implement solutions, integrated between agriculture and other sectors, at all levels of governance.
The event was co-organized by IAP, the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf).
The recording of the session is now available on the ASSAf YouTube Channel:
