“Agriculture is both a driver and a casualty of climate change. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimates that 10–12 percent of human-produced greenhouse gas emissions come from agricultural activities. These emissions, in turn, contribute to making agricultural output less reliable due to higher temperatures, droughts and floods.

As human populations increase and demand for food rises, solving the interwoven challenges of agriculture, food production and climate change is one of humanity’s greatest priorities.

It is one of the biggest stories of our time. But it is sometimes a complicated story to tell.

Through a series of webinars on climate change and agriculture, a global team of scientific experts will discuss tools journalists can use to help better convey how climate change and agriculture are intricately linked. The series will cover some of the latest advances helping agriculture become more resilient, more productive and less of a burden on the environment. Journalists who are experts on reporting on climate issues will moderate these discussions.

February 12, 13 and 19.”
