Climate Resilient Agriculture for Ensuring Food Security

Topics: Food and Agriculture,

This book, aimed at post-graduate students and instructors, policy makers, and researchers, examines the pressures of deforestation, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and changing land management techniques on the agricultural sector. It predicts that such climate disruption, broadly defined, will cause serious changes in temperature, precipitation, soil quality, pest regimes, and seasonal growth patterns. To create a more resilient agricultural system, it suggests putting more effort into sustainable and organic farming practices, assuming new land for agriculture is scarce, reducing waste, anticipating water availability challenges. A specific eleven-dimension list is presented outlining these recommendations and others.
