It also accounts for significant emissions and is, therefore, a priority for both adaptation and mitigation plans and actions at global, national and local levels.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.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.DocumentSTEPS Centre, Institute of Development Studies, 2009Maize is a socially, politically and economically staple crop in Kenya. This paper summarises the findings of the STEPS Environmental Change and Maize Innovation in Kenya project, which utilised maize as a window through which to explore differential responses to climate change.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.DocumentForesight UK, 2011The global food system will experience an unprecedented combination of pressures over the next 40 years.

Over this period, globalisation will continue, exposing the food system to novel economic and political pressures.DocumentInternational Food Policy Research Institute, 2009Climate change, together with global population and income growth, is a major threat to food security in the world. This food policy report presents research results which quantify climate change impact, assess the consequences for food security and estimate the investment required to offset the negative effects on human wellbeing.DocumentEcoNexus, 2009Agriculture 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.DocumentStockholm Environment Institute, 2008The development of climate projections for Africa is evolving rapidly, yet little is known about how effectively this data is being utilised. This study, commissioned by the Rockefeller Foundation, aims to identify and understand the extent to which, and ways in which, information from climate change models is being integrated into agricultural development practice and decision-mDocumentPolicy Research Working Papers, World Bank, 2007Cameroon’s economy is primarily agrarian and 80% of the country’s poor are involved in farming.
