    The agricultural sector and food systems will not be spared. It essentially contributes to explore the drivers behind adaptation measures in the province. The IPCC emphasizes that it is very fundamental for the agricultural sector to adapt to climate change. To avoid existing aid being redirected, additionality refers to the extra costs of adaptation.

    The energy level needs to be sustained when people leave. The principal argument is threefold: 1 while there are significant differences between territories and countries in terms of the Agricultural adaptation to climate change book of farmers and the other actors to engage in capacity building to be able to adapt effectively to climate change and variability, 2 the critical roles are those played out by the farmers themselves, but that 3 other actors can play an important role in accompanying farmers in their adaptation process, providing relevant and strategic information, counseling them and facilitating networking and meetings when appropriate. Failure to adapt to climate change would make the Philippines even more susceptible to extreme events and to the long-term impacts of climate change. This effectively means that without engaging in the local adaptation processes governments can really only play effective roles by working with other actors at the local and regional levels. The IPCC emphasizes that it is very fundamental for the agricultural sector to adapt to climate change. Below is the map of Pakistan, highlighting light green portion as our case of study that is Punjab province Figure 1.

    To manage the consequences of climate change, two fundamental societal response options emerged in the form of mitigation and adaptation [ 25 ]. Some adaptation measures, however, are anticipating future climate change, such as the construction Agricultural adaptation to climate change book the Confederation Bridge in Canada at a higher elevation to take into account the effect of future sea-level rise on ship clearance under the bridge. The important role of climate change adaptation as a policy is well considered and recognized internationally [ 35 ]. It involves an understanding, for instance, of information diffusion processes in the different farming communities and territories, which provides a set of tools to promote and facilitate the adoption process in the context of adaptation to climate change and variability. Pakistan is among those countries which were badly affected in due to climate change [ 7 ]. Huge reduction in coarse grain and other crops were found in china up to

Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Strategies for Agronomic Crops

To manage the consequences of climate change, two fundamental societal response options emerged in the form of mitigation and adaptation [ 25 ]. Extreme events occurring during the summer period would have the most dramatic impact on plant productivity.

Strengthening these local techniques and building upon Agricultural adaptation to climate change book also makes it more likely that adaptation strategies will be adopted, as it creates more community ownership and involvement in the process.

To ensure sustainability of agriculture, studying the possible climate change impacts on this sector is essential [ 91947 ]. These stakeholders include policy experts, government officials, think tanks working in the area, related nongovernmental organizations, academics, ministry of climate change, provincial environmental protection agency, farmer community, civil society, and climate change activists in the province of Punjab.

Increasing farm productivity sustainably will require more efficient use of inputs and a likely reduction of emission intensity, De Pinto argued, and a CSA approach must involve all aspects of food production and development if it is to make a significant contribution.

The broader relevance of this work across Agricultural adaptation to climate change book Other countries in the Asia and Pacific regions share many characteristics related to agriculture and climate change with the Philippines.

A transition to CSA will meet obstacles Agricultural adaptation to climate change book as risk, uncertainty, and imperfect markets, De Pinto said, and decision-makers must take a systemic view of agricultural development in the overall context of land use.

This effectively means that without engaging in the local adaptation processes governments can really only play effective roles by working with other actors at the local and regional levels. In Paris Agreementthe adaptation to climate change is much emphasized.

Climate Change Mitigation of Climate Change. Special Report: Global Warming of Agricultural adaptation to climate change book. Impacts of climate change vary geographically and temporally.

This warming is expected to substantially alter the climate system and change global food production, mainly because temperatures are predicted to increase which in turn will alter the precipitation pattern and increase the frequency of extreme events such as drought [ 15434445 ].

Impact of climate change on cereal crop production. The principal argument is threefold: 1 while there are significant differences between territories and countries in terms of the capacity of farmers and the other actors to engage in capacity building to be able to adapt effectively to climate change and variability, 2 the critical roles are those played out by the farmers themselves, but that 3 other actors can play an important role in accompanying farmers in their adaptation process, providing relevant and strategic information, counseling them and facilitating networking and meetings when appropriate.

For example, adaptive capacity in Western Europe is generally considered to be high, [58] and the risks of warmer winters increasing the range of livestock diseases is well documented, but many parts of Europe were still badly affected by outbreaks of the Bluetongue virus in livestock in Adaptation actions are important response to climate change as these actions help to reduce the vulnerabilities in the social and biological system [ 17 ].

They further highlighted that it is significantly unclear that how this adaptive capacity is actually built or enhanced. IPCC, Agriculture, forestry and other land use plays a central role for food security and sustainable development.

To deal with the complex issue of climate change, equally complex solutions are required which involve several fields of human activity and different stakeholders.

When it occurs, it can be very effective, but when it does not, farmers are left to their own devices and even then, many are able to use their own creativity and local knowledge to survive and continue to develop. The impact of climate change on coarse grain, oilseed and other miner crops such as pearl millet, sorghum and sesame are shown in Table 1.

It is a globally environmental challenge. There are studies in Pakistan which highlight the need for adaptation action but actual field-based studies for adaptation responses to climate change are rare [ 10 ].

Because climate change magnifies existing problems, he added, simply using existing resources more efficiently can help. Nevertheless, the impact of increasing temperatures can vary widely between crops and regions.This book presents recent research and practices for adaptation to climate change in food production systems (esp.

agriculture) in Japan and neighboring Asian countries. A must-read for researchers and policymakers in adaptation planning, climate negotiations and agricultural developments.
