Director, CGIAR Research Progam on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)
Dr Bruce Campbell has degrees in Ecology from Cape Town (B.Sc. Hons.), Minnesota (M.Sc.) and Utrecht (Ph.D.), but has increasingly moved into inter-disciplinary work, championing new approaches to doing applied research on natural resource management. He is Director of the CGIAR Research Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), and a staff member of the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT). He operates out of the CCAFS office at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
CCAFS taps into the complementary strengths of the international agricultural system (CGIAR) and Future Earth, and their respective partners, to address the most pressing and complex challenge to food security in the 21st century. The collaboration brings together some of the world's best researchers in agricultural science, development research, climate science and Earth System science.
He serves on several editorial boards, and is a scientific committee member of PECS, the ICSU Programme on Ecosystem Change and Society.
He was previously based in Zimbabwe, Indonesia and Australia, where he has worked in agricultural and forestry research for development. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and more than a dozen books.
