    Mechanisms for agricultural climate change mitigation incentives for smallholders

    Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research, 2011
    Smallholder 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).

    Technologies for climate change adaptation: agriculture sector

    United Nations [UN] Environment Programme, 2011
    The agriculture sector faces the challenge of providing adequate food to a growing world population. There is limited scope to expand arable land, and unpredictable weather, floods, and other disastrous events make food production even more challenging. This guidebook provides information on 22 technologies and options for adapting to climate change in the agriculture sector.

    The future of food and farming: challenges and choices for global sustainability

    Foresight UK, 2011
    The global food system will experience an unprecedented combination of pressures over the next 40 years. Global population size will increase and competition for land, water and energy will intensify, while the effects of climate change will become increasingly apparent. Over this period, globalisation will continue, exposing the food system to novel economic and political pressures.

    Agriculture and climate change: real problems, false solutions

    EcoNexus, 2009
    Agriculture plays an important role in climate change, both as a contributor emitting greenhouse gasses (GHGs) and as a potential reducer of negative impacts. This paper gives an overview of how current and proposed agricultural practices affect climate change and how the proposed measures for mitigation and adaptation impact agriculture.

    Gender and equity issues in liquid biofuels production - minimizing the risks to maximize the opportunities

    Economic and Social Department, FAO, 2008
    The production of liquid biofuels such as bioethanol and biodiesel is rapidly increasing in developing countries, due mainly to the establishment of large-scale biofuel feedstock plantations. This results in potential socio-economic benefits, particularly in terms of agricultural employment, but also in risks, which tend to be context-specific.

    Organic agriculture and climate change

    International Trade Centre, 2007
    Agriculture is affected by climate change but also contributes to it. As a sector, agriculture must therefore  both adapt to changes and offers options for mitigation, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and storing carbon. This study explores the mitigation and adaptation potential of organic agriculture.
