As many countries are increasing commitments to address climate change, national governments are exploring how they could best reduce the impact of their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Agriculture is a major contributor to GHG emissions, especially in developing countries, where this sector accounts for an average of 35% of all GHG emissions.

This paper aims at providing a more objective vision of advantages and drawbacks highlighted from a joined thinking on the link between climate change and development. The agriculture sector is part of solution to cope with climate change and can be remunerated through climate change funds.
