Adapting agriculture to climate change

This year’s World Food Day celebration is dedicated to the topic ‘Climate is changing. Food and Agriculture must too’, food security being one of the biggest issues related to climate change. Many of the 800 million people suffering from chronic undernourishment are small-scale farmers, fishers and pastoralists who are hardest hit by higher temperatures and weather-related disasters. Agriculture and food systems will need to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and become more resilient, productive and sustainable.
