Abstract

Agriculture is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts, which has implications for food production and security. Agriculture could be more resilient to climate change impacts through new technology or by diversifying crops on farms. This note considers the impacts of climate change on food production globally and the implications for the UK, as well as options for reducing emissions, and approaches for adapting agriculture to climatic changes.
