Climate change and development: a consultation on key researchable issues. Section 2.1: Agriculture and food security.
Climate change will have both positive and negative impacts on agriculture and future food supply. Certain sectors and regions may benefit from changing climate conditions, opening up new opportunities. However, many poorer countries, especially those in the tropics and sub-tropics, will face increasing vulnerability, threatening food security. It is for this reason that climate change must be included in agricultural development programmes.
