About TempAg

Mission

TempAg is an international collaborative research network established to increase the impact of agricultural research in the world's temperate regions. The network was established in April 2015 with support from the OECD Global Science Forum. The network's activity is jointly coordinated by the Global Food Security (GFS) programme and INRA (National Institute of Agricultural Research, France). Through its activity the network aims to:

  • increase the impact and return on investment of national research programmes in temperate agriculture,
  • enable dissemination and alignment of existing and new research & technology and
  • identify areas of research relevant to science & policy which are currently not addressed at an international level.

The overarching goal of the network is to ensure delivery of resilient agricultural production systems at multiple levels across the “temperate” zone.
