Climate change and agriculture: can market governance mechanisms reduce emissions from the food system fairly and effectively?International Institute for Environment and Development, 2012Agriculture accounts for 30 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. How agriculture is practised, therefore, has significant potential for mitigating climate change, providing food security and improving the livelihoods of food producers worldwide.DocumentCambridge University, 2007This contributory chapter of Working Group III to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) outlines the status of climate change mitigation in agriculture and its implications on development, production and consumption trends. It presents regional and global trends in greenhouse gas emissions, as well as future global trends.DocumentFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2009This book presents historical evidence of the linkages between climate and food security and the current challenges climate change poses on world food security. It argues that changing climatic conditions are projected to affect food security from the local to the global level as the unpredictability of weather conditions increases.DocumentConsultative Group on International Agricultural Research, 2011This paper places agriculture at the heart of climate change policy stating that climate change is already changing the face of farming. Increases in temperature, changing patterns of rainfall, more extreme droughts and floods, and the shifting distribution of pests and diseases can all be attributed in part to the increase in emissions of greenhouse gases resulting from human activities.DocumentFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2011This report summarises current knowledge of the anticipated impacts of climate change on water availability for agriculture. It examines the implications for local and national food security and the methods and approaches for assessing climate change impacts on water and agriculture.DocumentInternational Water Management Institute, 2010This working paper aims to create a more comprehensive understanding of how the impacts of CC will be realized at different scales in Nepal (from household livelihoods to national food security), and the many institutions governing the ultimate adaptation process. SectionI, Background, provides background information on Nepal.DocumentMeridian Institute, 2011This scoping report provides context and analysis for addressing agriculture in international climate negotiations with the aim of informing climate negotiators and other stakeholders of different options and unpacking issues of interest.DocumentUnited Nations Development Programme, 2012Due to misguided policies, weak institutions and failing markets, sub-Saharan Africa has millions of hungry and malnourished people. This first Africa Human Development Report 2012 seeks to look beyond direct causes of food insecurity, such as crop failure, to highlight the social and political dimensions that are inhibiting progress.DocumentWorld Bank, 2012This report aims to improve the knowledge base for scaling-up investments in land management technologies that sequester soil carbon for increased productivity under changing climate conditions. The report presents the following key messages.DocumentConsultative Group on International Agricultural Research, 2011Smallholder farmers have an important role to play in the prevention of climate change by reducing net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, they are not benefitting from international financial mechanisms established as a result of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
