Note d’analyse : Climate change, food security and small-scale producers


Changement climatiqueAnalyse, synthèse

Farmers, businesses and governments around the world report growing impacts of climate change on agricultural production and food security, and are trying to find ways to adapt to change. The chance to measure these real-life experiences and efforts against new science is extremely useful, but rare. Released during 2013 and 2014, the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) offers the first opportunity since 2007 for us to appraise the global scientific consensus on climate change drivers, impacts, adaptation and mitigation. This briefing note offers an overview of what AR5 has to say on the impacts of climate change on food and farming – particularly the food and farming of the half a billion small-scale croppers, livestock keepers and fishers who are most immediately dependent on agricultural systems for their livelihoods. It is based on two related sources within the output of Working Group 2 under AR5: (a) Chapter 7 on Food Security and Food Production Systems and (b) the Summary for Policy Makers. The IPCC’s Working Group 2 is tasked with assessing the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change, negative and positive consequences of climate change, and options for adaptation.
