Commission on the Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture - overview

65 views

Published on

The CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems is leading a commission on SIA in order to share the expertise of the CGIAR and partners who are working on real life SIA solutions in developing and emerging economies. By collecting successful ‘on the ground’ examples and identifying the enabling environments needed from a policy and institution perspective, the Commission will outline how to transform our agricultural systems to be environmentally and socially sustainable.

(e.g. organic vs. GMO, small-holder vs. industrial, labor intensive vs. employment generation, intensive vs. extensive meat production, food vs. environmental security) • GAPS: What are the key knowledge gaps or barriers that might slow progress towards an SAI transition?  • FOCUS: What should be the geographic scale and scope: Global or subnational? Developed/ emerging / developing economies?
