About Climate-Smart Agriculture

Agriculture accounts for over a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions, in some countries even more. But as well as being a big contributor to climate change, agriculture can also be a major part of the solution. CIAT is helping shape a farming future that is cleaner, greener, more productive and more resilient.
