The Global Commission on Adaptation seeks to highlight the adaptation challenges confronting poor people, notably poor farmers whose livelihoods are fragile and dependent on the weather and launch a year of action to begin rising to meet this challenge.

In this seminar, IFPRI researchers advance paths towards meeting the adaptation challenge by doing more, better, and new.
