The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is supporting actors establishing Local Technical Agroclimatic Working Groups in three municipalities in Colombia, bringing together agronomists, seasonal forecasters, and farmers’ knowledge to link climate science to local knowledge through the analysis of agroclimatic information. Monthly Local Agroclimatic Bulletins with specific adaptation recommendations are being produced. There is a great opportunity to strengthen the groups with more scientific support and capacity building, such as pest and disease analysis also linked to soil management, genetic resources as an adaptation technology (including beans, rice, forages, and cassava), market linkages through climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices, as well as sustainable production tools regarding carbon and/or water footprint opportunities at local scale.
