Abstract: The International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) is working toward achieving consensus on ways to ensure global food security. An international assessment is a novel multi-stakeholder approach to global assessment of existing evidence from a wide range of disciplines and practices that are required to address the many interdependent facets of food and farming outcomes. It is a unique platform for dialogue that has enabled assessment of the evidence in ways that reflect on where we are going, for what purposes and how we could use knowledge, science and technology to change direction. A strong finding is that ‘business as usual’ is not an option.
