This infographic describes the importance of agriculture sectors in national adaptation processes to help ensure food and nutrition security. 

Changing climatic conditions, such as more frequent and extreme weather events, will negatively affect the livelihoods of rural people, and food and nutrition security. In their submissions to the UN climate convention, a large proportion of the developed countries referred to agriculture sectors as a priority for climate change adaptation. FAO supports countries in building an enabling environment and developing capacity at different levels, allowing countries to sustainably transform their agriculture sectors and natural resource management.

Biodiversity for food security and nutrition: 30 years of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture Genetic resources for food and agriculture are not only of actual but even more of potential value to food security, nutrition and livelihoods. However, biodiversity, and in particular genetic diversity, is being lost at an alarming rate.

The Commission provides the only permanent forum for governments to discuss and negotiate matters specifically relevant to biological diversity for food and agriculture. The main objectives of the Commission are to ensure the conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources for food and agriculture, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits derived from their use, for present and future generations.

An El Niño state occurs when the central and eastern equatorial Pacific sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) are substantially higher than usual. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) defines an El Niño event when the NIÑO 3.4 area has sea-surface temperatures at least 0.5 ºC higher than normal for five consecutive three-month-averaged periods.

The extent of the world’s forest continues to decline as human populations continue to grow and demand for food and land increases. Implementing sustainable forest management practices requires sound policies and positive returns on investment to encourage adoption. Consult the latest Global Forest Resources Assessment 2015 and take a look at how the world’s forests are changing.

Food Security and Agriculture face major challenges under climate change, in terms of expected negative impacts on productivity as well as implementation of sectoral actions to limit global warming. Agriculture's greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise – although not as fast as emissions from other human activities. Better regional and national data on emissions from farming, livestock-raising, fisheries and forestry can help countries identify opportunities for reducing emissions while addressing their food security, resilience and rural development goals – and gain access to global funding to pursue them.

The new FAOSTAT emissions database represents the most comprehensive knowledge base on agricultural greenhouse gas emissions ever assembled. Updated annually, it provides a global point of reference on emissions and mitigation opportunities in the sector.
