The Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) jointly hosted the International Conference on Climate Change and Food Security (ICCCFS) November 6-8, 2011 in Beijing, China. This conference provided a forum for leading international scientists and young researchers to present their latest research findings, exchange their research ideas, and share their experiences in the field of climate change and food security. The event included technical sessions, poster sessions, and social events. The conference results and recommendations were presented at the global climate talks in Durban, South Africa during an official side event on December 1.

  • 16. Statistical resultsThere is a close correlation between the average grain yield innormal years and SOC content in cropland in the major grain-producing areas In upland area in north China, the SOC content of 1 g/kg isequivalent to the grain productivity of 0.3 -0.5t/ha In paddy area in south China, the SOC content of 1 g/kg isequivalent to the grain productivity of 0.4-0.6 t/ha. On average, with the increase of 1 g/kg of SOC content, theincrease of grain yield stability ranges from 10% to 20%.
