CCAFS seeks to overcome the threats to agriculture and food security in a changing climate, exploring new ways of helping vulnerable rural communities adjust to global changes in climate.
 
CCAFS offers developing country farmers new options for adapting to emerging impacts of climate change in the coming decades and for mitigating climate change through a “carbon-friendly” agriculture that also strengthens food security and reduces poverty. Developed in collaboration with the Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP), the initiative involves all CGIAR Centers (under the leadership of CIAT in Colombia) and a wide coalition of partners, with an initial 3-year budget totaling US$393 million.
