A new report – Coping with Climate Change: The Roles of Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture launched last month from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). The report launch coincided with the 15th session of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (CGRFA-15) in January 2015. Examples were presented from four countries – China, India, Kenya, and Peru – of just how some farmers are being innovative in response to just such challenges.
