Main purpose of the positions are to establish the definitive database on the impact of field-level agricultural practices on food production, adaptive capacity, and climate change mitigation (i.e., climate-smart agriculture). The Consultant team containing approximately six members will work together to find, compile and analyze research on climate-smart agriculture. This will require literature search, evaluation, and data extraction and will yield both a terrain map of the available information and a database of evidence.
