climate change


Technology and data on farming conditions can help reduce exposure to risk. Fourth blog in the series in connection with the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25).
Farmers are exposed to multiple risks, which reinforce each other. Yet, most studies to date have focused on one source of risk only.
Shifting from volatile staples to more climate change-resistant crops such as groundnuts and adjusting land use in response to risks can offset falling yields, research suggests.
Climate change ranks among the most important dynamics shaping livelihoods of young people now and in the future. New IFAD blog on the topic.
Research indicates that climate change impacts will push down rainfed maize yields in Central America over the coming decades.
Growing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as Cyclone Idai in Mozambique, are increasingly viewed as a consequence of climate change. This is true globally, but particularly for areas like southern Africa. What is the way forward from Idai’s aftermath?
New resource suggests climate adaptation strategies, as well as investment and policy options in the Philippine agriculture sector.
Climate change matters for all people. Does it matter particularly for young people? If so, where and how? Join our webinar with Karen Brooks and Keith Wiebe on February 7 to discuss!
This seminar on Nov 20, organized jointly by CGIAR and the World Bank, will discuss latest evidence of relevance to all those engaged in food systems and climate change. Attend in person or remotely via WebEx.
