Agriculture is one of the most climate-sensitive of all economic sectors. In many countries, such as the fourexamined in Looking Beyond the Horizon, the risks of climate change are an immediate and fundamentalproblem because the majority of the rural population depends either directly or indirectly on agriculture forits livelihood.The risks of climate change to agriculture cannot be eff ectively dealt with—and the opportunities cannot beeff ectively exploited—without a clear plan for aligning agricultural policies with climate change,

In farming systems across Canada, effective risk management is necessary to deal with drought, flooding, and extreme weather, and to adapt to altered climate and weather conditions. Unfortunately, climate change risks and opportunities are not always well understood among researchers and policy makers in the Canadian agri-food sector. This book addresses that gap by providing a wide-ranging synopsis of what climate change means for Canadian agriculture, exploring different approaches to the topic, and presenting examples of current research. It covers

Several environmental changes have occurred in the Sudan in the past; several are ongoing; and others are projected to happen in the future. The Sudan has witnessed increases in temperature, floods, rainfall variability, and concurrent droughts. In a country where agriculture, which is mainly rainfed, is a major contributor to gross domestic product, foreign exchange earnings, and livelihoods, these changes are especially important, requiring measurement and analysis of their impact. This study not only analyzes the economy-wide impacts of climate

Global Climate Change presents both practical and theoretical aspects of global climate change from across geological periods. It addresses holistic issues related to climate change and its contribution in triggering the temperature increase with a multitude of impacts on natural processes. As a result, it helps to identify the gaps between policies that have been put in place and the continuously increasing emissions. The challenges presented include habitability, biodiversity, natural resources, and human health. It is organized into information on

This paper goes beyond the “business” case for agricultural value chain development and presents an economy-wide framework to make the “development” case. We show that there are several key transmission channels that determine the economy-wide impacts of promoting various value chains, including forward and backward economic linkages, price responses, and net employment effects. These impacts all matter for household incomes, poverty, and dietary diversity. Results for Egypt show that agricultural value chain development generates economy-wide growth as well as growth

Between the 1960s and 1980s, a series of abrupt, 'unprecedented' droughts occurred in the Sahel region of Sub Saharan Africa which created a regime shift in the Sahel where the socio-ecological and livelihood systems transitioned from a high resilience/low sensitivity to a low resilience /high sensitivity state. Mali, a landlocked country in sub-Saharan Africa, experienced dramatic impacts on food security and social, environmental, and institutional systems triggered by the droughts. As a result, Malian agriculture underwent significant transformations initiated

Over the next century, experts project a 2-5° C rise in global temperatures -- a change that will result in significant and lasting impacts to agriculture. The impacts of global warming will affect more than commercial agriculture; in fact, some argue that impacts will be most acute in regions where a majority of the population survives through subsistence farming. This shift will have direct impacts on those who rely on agriculture for their livelihoods, such as fieldworkers and farmers, but
