Miniseries on sustainability: Agriculture & the global climate debate 4/4

In this final installment of our four-part miniseries of agriculture and sustainability we focus on one of the most important issues facing agriculture and the sustainability of our food systems: climate change.

We take a look at what's at stake for agriculture at the upcoming Paris Climate Conference and talk to experts about climate smart agriculture, the threats to food production in developing countries, and the investments needed to help countries adapt to climate change.

In this week's episode, we'll be speaking to Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and President of the Mary Robinson Foundation, who is the UN Special Envoy on Climate Change until the end of the Paris climate conference in December. We'll also hear from FAO experts Martin Frick, Director of FAO's Climate, Energy and Tenure Division, and Leslie Lipper, senior environmental economist in FAO's Agricultural Development Economics Division.
