The Conference starts on Tuesday the 3rd of December and ends on the Thursday, the 5th of December 2013. The Conference will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa. The venue will be Emperors Palace Hotel Casino Convention and Entertainment Resort.
The Conference is a continuation of two previous conferences: in November 2010, the 1st Global Conference brought together the agendas of agriculture, food security and climate change. This was followed by the 2nd Global Conference in September 2012 in Viet Nam, which allowed global leaders, practitioners, scientists, civil society and the private sector to share experiences and demonstrate how early action on Climate-Smart Agriculture could act as a driver of green growth.
In addition, there were two prior scientific conferences that were held to allow the exchange of research and ideas relevant to the objectives of Climate-Smart Agriculture: in October 2011, the Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture was held at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. Then, in March 2013 the Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture was held again at the University of California, Davis, in the United States.
