The importance of agriculture for climate protection and achieving the goal of halting global warming at 1.5°C is increasingly recognised. Up to 12% of the greenhouse gas emissions globally come from agriculture. This is only one part of the story. Agriculture is also severely affected by the climate change.
Adaptation and resilience still dominate the global climate discourse when it comes to agriculture and food production. However, in industrialised countries and emerging economies mitigation slowly finds its way into the conversation. At the same time, many mitigation interventions also are adaptation measures (and vice versa).
