Climate change adaptation and mitigation in the food and agriculture sector
Climate change will result in additional food insecurities, particularly for the resource poor in developing countries who cannot meet their food requirements through market access.
Communities must protect themselves against the possibility of food-shortage emergencies through appropriate use of resources in order to preserve livelihoods as well as lives and property. It is imperative to identify and institutionalize mechanisms that enable the most vulnerable to cope with climate change impacts. This requires collaborative thinking and responses to the issues generated by the interaction of food security, climate change and sustainable development.
