The State of Food and Agriculture 2016

The Paris Agreement, adopted in December 2015, represents a new beginning in the global effort to stabilize the climate before it is too late. It recognizes the importance of food security in the international response to climate change, as reflected by many countries focusing prominently on the agriculture sector in their planned contributions to adaptation and mitigation. To help put those plans into action, this report identifies strategies, financing opportunities, and data and information needs. It also describes transformative policies and institutions that can overcome barriers to implementation.

In this context, this edition of The State of Food and Agriculture presents evidence on the current and future impacts of climate change on agriculture and food security. Based on this evidence, the report goes on to describe transformative policies and institutions that can facilitate an effective response to climate change. Climate change is already affecting agriculture and food security. Without urgent action, millions more people will be at risk of hunger and poverty.
