Impacts of climate change on the agricultural and aquatic systems and natural resources within the CGIAR's mandate
MetadataShow full item record
The publication provides 25 summaries of the impacts on climate change on 22 natural, agroforestry, forest and water resources. Each summary explains how each resource is valuable, how each is threatened by climate change and how individuals who rely upon that resource are at risk for socio-economic disruption. It remains largely unknown how climate change will impact important natural resources and the strength and patterns of diseases, weeds, and pests. It remains to be discovered how food security will be impacted by climate change-induced variability in temperature, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, and rainfall. The summaries in this document seek to clarify these concerns.
