161. Actions to Reconfigure Food Systems
The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security Research (CCAFS), an international network of agricultural research institutes, has published "Perspective aricle: Actions to reconfigure food systems" in the journal Global Food Security. According to the article, reconfiguration of the food systems must include rerouting trajectories and appropriate intervention targeting must take into account the diversity of farmers and agricultural systems.
JIRCAS is also promoting the development of agricultural technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation measures for small-scale farmers in developing countries. These activities involve not only agricultural researchers but also social science researchers taking into consideration the ideal way of technical intervention that is easily acceptable to farmers.
