  • Implications of climate change for sustainable agricultural production systems in ACP countries: Getting information and communication strategies righ

    During the CTA Annual Seminar which took place in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso from 26 to 31 October 2008, the impact of climate change on the agricultural sectors of ACP countries was discussed in terms of its effects on the productivity of cropping and agro-pastoral systems, and its impacts on the biophysical and socio-economic structure of rural ...

  • Climate Change and Agriculture: An Economic Analysis of Global Impacts, Adaptation and Distriubtional Effects

    Despite its great importance, there are surprisingly few economic studies of the impact of climate on agriculture and how agriculture can adapt under a variety of conditions. This book examines 22 countries across four continents, including both developed and developing economies. It provides both a good analytical basis for additional work and ...

  • Impacts of El Nino and Climate Variability on Agriculture

    As interest in global climate increases, an understanding of the impact of major weather patterns such as El Nino grows in importance. This special publication takes an international approach to explore the impacts of climate variability on crop production and the potential of using seasonal climate forecasts for enhancing agricultural ...

  • Two essays on climate change and agriculture. A developing country perspective (En)

    Series: FAO Economic and Social Development PapersThe agricultural sector is closely linked to climate change. Agriculture has a significant impact on the process of climatic change while the latter has a potential effect on agricultural production. There is still considerable uncertainty surrounding the implications of climate change for ...

  • Issues in the Impacts of Climate Variability and Change on Agriculture

    This book presents a collection of articles concerning key topics which examine the impacts of climate change and variability on agriculture. The application region is the southeastern United States. The main topics include an investigation of the effect of variations in the spatial scale of climate change scenarios on an agricultural integrated ...

  • Crop Modeling and Decision Support

    'Crop Modeling and Decision Support' presents 36 papers selected from the International Symposium on Crop Modeling and Decision Support (ISCMDS-2008), held at Nanjing of China from 19th to 22nd in April, 2008.

  • Natural Disasters and Extreme Events in Agriculture

    Agricultural production is highly dependent on weather, climate and water availability and is adversely affected by the weather and climate-related disasters. Droughts and natural disasters such as floods can result in crop failures, food insecurity, famine, loss of property and life, mass migration and negative national economic growth. It may ...

  • History and Climate: Memories of the Future?

    Most studies of the impacts of climate change consider impacts in the future from anthropogenic climate change. Very few consider what the impacts of past climate change have been. History and Climate: Memories of the Future? contains 13 interdisciplinary chapters which consider impacts of change in different regions of the world, over the ...

  • Agriculture and Climate Beyond 2015

    Interactions between agriculture, climate and patterns of land use are complex. Major changes in agriculture, and land use patterns are foreseen in the next couple of decades in response to shifts in climate, greenhouse gas management initiatives, population growth and other forces. The book explores key interactions between changes in ...

  • Climate Change and Crops

    Climate change is directly linked to the human activities, according to the Fourth Assessment Report of IPCC (2007). In last two decades of 20th Century, accelerated anthropogenic activities pushed up the atmospheric abundance of greenhouse gases, mainly CO2, CH4, and N2O, alarmingly which enhanced the radiative forcing of the Earth’s surface and ...

  • Managing Weather and Climate Risks in Agriculture

    In many parts of the world, weather and climate are one of the biggest production risks and uncertainty factors impacting on agricultural systems performance and management. Both structural and non-structural measures can be used to reduce the impacts of the variability (including extremes) of climate resources on crop production. While the ...
