Conference on Climate Change & Agriculture: Impacts, Resilience & Adaptations for Sustainable Food Security

The world’s climate is rapidly changing due to global warming and will continue to be severe in the coming decades and centuries ahead. This will pose major challenge for future agricultural scenarios to provide food and other bio-resources for the projected global 9 billion people by 2050.

The climate change will trigger varieties of problems related to agriculture. It will affect all four dimensions of food security: food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food systems stability. This change will impact human health, livelihood assets, food production and distribution channels, as well as changing purchasing power and market flows. Its impacts will be both short term, resulting from more frequent and more intense extreme weather events, and long term, caused by changing temperatures and precipitation patterns. Food systems will also be affected through possible internal and international migration, resource- based conflicts and civil unrest triggered by climate change and its impacts. At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen the resilience of rural people and to help them cope with this additional threat to food security. Particularly in the agriculture sector, climate change adaptation can go hand-in-hand with mitigation and organic farming. The conference aims at knowledge exchange on the interrelationship between climate change and food security and ways to deal with the new threats.
