The Hague conference on agriculture, food security and climate change: Chair's summary


This summary reports on a conference aiming to agree on collective answers to the complex challenges of food insecurity, climate change, degradation of ecosystems and the economic recession. It urges for National Platforms on Disaster Risk Reductions to be included in their country plans for climate smart agriculture and to be based on the analysis of risk, vulnerabilities and capacities, with stronger coherence between adaptation, disaster risk reduction, food security and poverty reduction.

It also calls for risk management strategies to include measures to improve and disseminate weather and climate information, together with adapted weather based insurance mechanisms and social protection measures, as well as production safety nets and measures to reduce exposure of the most vulnerable to food price volatility.
