Challenges for a climate compatible development: how to strengthen agricultural, livestock and forestry public policiesLatin American Platform on Climate, 2012This policy brief emerges from a process of analysis of the status and quality of the public policies on climate change and development in ten Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Colombia, El Salvador and Paraguay.OrganisationBritish Journal of Environment and Climate Change (ISSN: 2231–4784) aims to publish original research articles, review articles and short communications.DocumentCentre for Alternative Technology, 2013This report explores how Britain can achieve Carbon neutrality. Building upon the groundwork laid by the Zero Carbon Britain project over the last six years, the authors incorporate the latest developments in science and technology, plus more detailed research in two main areas: balancing highly variable energy supply and demand; and the nutritional implications of a low carbon diet.DocumentFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2012Recent food crises and growing concerns about global climate change have placed agriculture on top of the international agenda.

Developing a climate-smart agriculture strategy at the country level: lessons from recent experienceFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2012This paper presents recent experiences of country level implementation of climate smart agriculture (CSA) to identify some key lessons to incorporate into ongoing CSA activities in developing countries.DocumentInternational Institute for Sustainable Development, 2012The agricultural sector plays a critical role in food security, poverty reduction and economic growth, especially in developing countries, where agriculture is fundamental to sustainable development.Document2011These guidelines are designed to provide basic and flexible guidance on how to: (i) conduct impact and vulnerability assessments in the agricultural sector; (ii) identify opportunities and entry points for integration of climate change mitigation and adaptation(CCMA) measures; (iii) identify, analyse and integrate options for CCMA into the agricultural policy formulation, financing, implementationDocumentFood 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.
