Countries need a sound understanding of how climate change and variability may impact their food systems, ecosystems, societies and national economies. In this regard, FAO seeks to support countries and decision-makers by building capacities and developing innovative, user-friendly tools and methods for assessing vulnerability, present and future impacts and, in turn, planning adaptation strategies. FAO also promotes sharing of existing climate change-related data and information among institutions as the first step towards bridging knowledge gaps. Communication for development and information-sharing activities help promote people’s participation and ownership of adaptation planning and activities.
