CCAFS researchers made important contributions to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), which was published in 2014. In this way, CCAFS helped decision makers worldwide to prioritize and design agricultural sector interventions aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change. Citations of papers by CGIAR and CCAFS scientists in the Fifth Assessment reports were far higher than in previous reports. CCAFS researcher Professor Andy Challinor, based at the University of Leeds in the UK, was a lead author of the chapter on ‘Food security and food production systems’ in the report on Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability.
