Feeding the world in a changing climate: an adaptation roadmap for agriculture

This discussion paper presents the main issues to be considered in an adaptation roadmap for agriculture, with a particular focus on developing countries. The expertise and experiences of CCAFS scientists and partners around the world were condensed to answer questions such as: What are the principal climate risks to agriculture and the implications of no adaptation? What are the key areas where action is required to advance in the implementation of climate-resilient agricultural practices? What are the emerging lessons from successful adaptation efforts in agriculture? What are the key pathways to scaling up agricultural adaptation?
