- DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Costa Rica is developing a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) that will provide climate finance for best livestock management practices that generate climate change mitigation benefits.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that expected population growth, coupled with income growth, would require 70% more food to be produced by 2050. However, climate change, which among other things affects temperature, seasonality, rainfall, and extreme events, makes this goal even more challenging.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Agriculture is a sector especially sensitive to climate change. 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, 2016In adopting the goals of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the international communit y took responsibility for building a sustainable future. But meeting the goals of eradicating hunger and poverty by 2030, while addressing the threat of climate change, will require a profound transformation of food and agriculture systems worldwide.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. Decision-makers have recognised the strong link between the dual goals of eradicating hunger and making agriculture sustainable.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.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.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.
