Summary

It is increasingly becoming apparent that climate change will affect all four dimensions of global food security: availability, accessibility, systems' stability, and utilization. This will likely adversely impact human health, livelihood assets, food production, and distribution channels, and alter purchasing power and market flows. Both developed and developing countries will be impacted. However, agricultural losses are expected to hit developing countries hardest, as agriculture employs a substantial number of people and contributes greatly to economic growth. This book addresses agriculture as abettor and sufferer; mitigation strategies; adaptation strategies, including agronomic and genetic interventions; and biodiversity.
