Climate, Food and Farming – Global Research Alliance Development Scholarships (CLIFF-GRADS) is a joint initiative of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security and the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA).
During their tenure at the host institutions, grant recipients learn to evaluate agriculture-related options for reducing GHG emissions and consider productivity and livelihood consequences. Topics depend on the students’ and host institutions’ interests. The techniques studied may include (but are not limited to) remote sensing, economic surveys, and measurement of greenhouse gas emissions.
Since 2011, a large number of students have received grants and have gone on to hold important positions in research institutions and governments.
