Collaboration in agriculture and food security is crucial to deal with climate change, said Jon Georg Dale, minister for agriculture and food security, Norway.

“Food security is top of the global agenda and the sustainable development goals. Agriculture must be at the heart of development and we must use water and other resources productively,” said Georg Dale, while speaking on climate change at the M S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) in the city on Monday.

Georg Dale said Norway was committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels and was taking several initiatives to meet this target. The meeting was held to share impact of the ‘Clima Adapt’ project that reaches out to over 41,000 farm families in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The project aims at providing capacity and knowledge for farmers to deal with climate change and its effects with sensitivity to gender issues.
