The subcommittee will help BIFAD to provide USAID with independent, evidence-based recommendations on how to accelerate climate change action through programs to achieve climate change adaptation and mitigation results, agricultural productivity, inclusive food systems changes, and poverty- and malnutrition-reduction objectives.
