Reducing risks to food security from climate change


This publication highlights the challenges to shift from climate impact studies focusing on crop yields towards a more action-oriented research agenda: the challenge of changing the culture of research; that of deriving stakeholder-driven portfolios of options for farmers, communities and countries; that of ensuring that adaptation actions are relevant to those most vulnerable to climate change; the challenge of combining adaptation and mitigation. It highlights research needs to better initiate adaptation planning with more relevant and focused information and ensure ownership.
