The UC Davis World Food Center has unveiled a web magazine with stories of the global challenge of farming under climate change, while the UC Office of the President has launched UC Global Operations, offering tools and resources to help plan and manage international research, travel and other activities abroad.
Weeks after showcasing UC Davis on the official U.S stage at the United Nations climate talks in Morocco, the World Food Center is highlighting the campus’s climate-smart research, this time through a project connecting the personal stories of farmers and ranchers to the research and policy solutions tackling this global challenge.
“Research at UC Davis helps our California growers stay at the leading edge of innovation necessary to compete in global markets and also to be good stewards of the environment,” Josette Lewis, associate director of the World Food Center, said at the U.N. conference. “We’re pleased to take these lessons globally and share our expertise working with other countries around the world.”
Open the project website: “Climate-Smart: Stories of Food, Farmers and Solutions.”

UC Global Operations
The systemwide UC Global Operations website, launched this month, is a central hub of information and resources for UC faculty, administrators, staff and students who are traveling abroad on UC business or assisting those who are. Whether you’re performing research, teaching, studying abroad or attending a conference, this website can help plan a project, plan a trip, travel safely, manage a project abroad and more.
Even if you’re traveling internationally for a personal vacation and not for UC business, you may find the website helpful, especially for resources such as travel alerts, the currency converter and international telephone access codes listed by country.
