Climate Change & Food Systems: Assessing Impacts and Opportunities

Food and agriculture are significant contributors to, and heavily impacted by, climate change, while also offering a range of opportunities for mitigating greenhouse gases through emission reductions and carbon sequestration. While there is growing discussion and dialogue about climate change and agriculture, relatively little analysis and focus has been put on climate change and food systems, more broadly. Meridian Institute’s report, Climate Change & Food Systems: Assessing Impacts and Opportunities, offers a food systems perspective on climate change.

Please download the final report. The Authors identified mitigation opportunities and their adaptation potential related to a broad range of food system activities. Overview tables of such Opportunities are available here. A full reference list for the report and the opportunities tables is available here.
