CLIFF-GRADS 2020 Science Collaboration Series – Special Session on WFO Young Farmers Gymnasium Panel

On 14 October 2020, the GRA and CCAFS successfully hosted the tenth webinar of the 2020 CLIFF-GRADS Science Collaboration Series.

The special session on the interface between science and farming featured three young farmers from the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) Gymnasium Programme. The farmers, based in South Africa, United Kingdom, and New Zealand, discussed the impact extreme weather events have had on farmers in their countries and shared their perspective on the role agriculture can play in addressing the challenges of climate change.

The panellists also discussed considerations scientists can take to involve agricultural producers when working on farms and the need for scientists and farmers to work together to come up with practical and innovative solutions.
