CTA announces partnership with the CGIAR for Pacific Island Farmers

A new research and development programme in the Pacific brings together the CGIAR and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) to address climate-change-adaptation needs of Pacific fishers and farmers.
The Pacific peoples are dependent on coastal resources for their livelihoods. Research has highlighted their extreme vulnerability to the effects of climate change, which is driving sea-level rise, ocean acidification, increased temperatures, erratic patterns of seasonality and increases in typhoons.
CTA and the international agricultural research centres supported by CGIAR are joining forces to initiate a research and development (R&D) programme to build resilience and strengthen adaptation to climate change and variability amongst fishers and farmers in the Pacific region. Funding will be provided by the CGIAR Fund, the New Zealand Aid Programme and the European Union. CGIAR will be represented by two of its research programmes – Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS). The Pacific programme will be led by WorldFish, but with other CGIAR centres contributing.
