dc.description.abstractA 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. Outputs from the global assessment and specifically from Africa will be presented to exemplify the diverse challenges and opportunities to identify and implement solutions, integrated between agriculture and other sectors, at all levels of governance.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAdverse effects of climate change on food and nutrition security are already apparent and projected to worsen. Transformative change for sustainable food systems and nutritional quality, including climate-smart, resilient agriculture, involves improving research capacity, extension services and political commitment, aligned with SDGs. Implementing evidence-based, customised, mitigation and adaptation solutions based on advances in biological and social sciences and informatics to deliver both supply- and demand-side changes, requires engagement with all stakeholders. Other priorities discussed include reconsideration of indigenous and underutilised food contributions and examination of food processing and other steps in the food chain and circular economy.
