Across different CGIAR centres there is a strong interest in applying farm household models to evaluate and target adaptation to climate change and variability. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), an important research partner for the CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), has developed into a top institute in this research area, and has strong interest in strengthening collaboration with CCAFS and other CRPs like Integrated Systems for the Humid Tropics. In recent years CCAFS and Humid Tropics have invested a lot of time and effort in collecting farm household level characterization data and in developing coherent socio-economic scenarios of change in the near future. Given the current interest in household level analyses of adaptation and mitigation options, and the availability of data and resources within CCAFS and other CRPs the aim of the workshop was to develop a community of practice across CGIAR centres and stimulate active CGIAR – CSIRO collaboration, thereby more effectively sharing and further developing the wide range of tools and approaches available in the different institutes. The workshop, besides exchanging information about new results of on-going work and sharing of approaches and methods also produced a flexible and stepwise work plan that could be implemented under different scenarios of available funding.
