Short Abstract:

Agriculture has a bidirectional relationship with climate change. It is a major contributor to climate change and it is also affected by climate change. Tackling the effects involves identifying sustainable mitigation and adaptive alternatives and the roles played by diverse institutions.

Long Abstract:

Globally, the adverse effect of climate change on agriculture remains a concern to policymakers, because if actions are not taken, the world would face more unimaginable consequences. Extreme weather events and accompanying natural disasters, such as floods, droughts, heat waves and wildfires, are becoming commonplace as the effects of climate change tighten their grip on the planet. Building the resilience of smallholder farmers to climate change in the agricultural food systems can be achieved by promoting the adoption of select agricultural practices and technological innovations that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This will ultimately help to develop the global food systems, eradicate poverty, and ensure food and nutrition security. This panel seek papers that will address the following issues: What are the bi-directional relations between agricultural food systems and climate changes? What mitigation and adaptive strategies to climate change are available to smallholders? What are smallholders doing to tackle the adverse effect of climate change? What are the welfare effects of climate change on smallholder farmers’ livelihood? What institutional arrangement and enabling conditions exist at the local, nation and global level to tackle climate change? This panel is open to accept paper (both academic and non-academic) to explore the bidirectional relationship between agricultural food systems and climate change and the inherent solutions. The conveners aim at stimulating discussions and developing a collaborative publication from the panels’ collection of papers.
