Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in Agriculture and Food Systems

Over the last decades, it has become increasingly clear that anthropogenic climate change poses an immense threat not only to ecosystems, but also to human societies. Agriculture and food systems are among the sectors that are most affected. Droughts, soil erosion, forest fires, floods, and extreme weather events deeply affect farming and food production. While small-scale farming in the Global South is threatened in its existence in many locales, food production is obstructed worldwide by climatic extremes, as California’s extreme droughts in 2014/15 have illustrated. Paradoxically, farming is also a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Overuse of fertilizers, land-use change, mechanization, and animal husbandry all contribute to climate change.
