16 March – 18 March 2015. Montpellier, France. CSA 2015 was the third international conference in a successful series on Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) that was launched by Wageningen University and Research in the Netherlands, in 2011. It then moved to the University of California, Davis, USA in 2013. Over these four years, the concept of climate-smart agriculture has spread worldwide. It is now attracting the attention of many scientists, policy makers, developers, farmers, as well as other stakeholders including the public. There were some 754 participants from 75 countries to attend this conference.
