Synergies of Adaptation and Mitigation for Sustainable Climate-Resilient Agriculture: Perspectives and Policy Implication
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns in 2018 that an increase in temperature of 1.5 °C above the pre-industrial levels will result in significant risks to food security, livelihoods, and economic development. This is because rainfed agricultural systems are vulnerable to climate variability and change, which in turn will negatively affect food access and nutritional outcomes.
Food systems, which are impacted by climate changes such as rising temperature and uneven rainfall distribution, account for more than a third of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the world. In many regions, especially in the developing world, which relies mainly on agricultural economics, climate change affects yield harvest and operation of commodity supply chains. Agriculture, forestry, and other land use (called AFOLU) is currently regarded as the only sector becoming a net emissions sink through the creation and protection of carbon sinks in forests, oceans, and soils.
Actions to tackle climate change are urgently required in all sectors of the world. Agriculture and food systems play an essential role in the sustainable development of their region. They are often significantly affected by climate change while also being one of the significant sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Comprehensive and quantitative understanding of GHG emitted from agriculture and food systems and seeking resilient societies under climate change are urgent.
The theme of the 5th special issue of FFTC Journal of Agricultural Policy (FFTC E-Journal) will focus on the wide range application of climate information, synergies of adaptation and mitigation measures, and adaptation in small-scale agriculture and its policy implications toward carbon neutrality. This special issue expects to build a policy-technology framework for productivity improvement using climate information on small-scale farmlands in seeking strategies toward the goal of 2050 carbon neutrality.
We are looking forward to your masterpieces!
