FAO-Adapt: Framework Programme on Climate Change Adaptation

FAO-Adapt: Framework Programme on Climate Change Adaptation
Oct 2011

The increasing spectre of soaring food prices and global warming has brought food security and climate change concerns to the top of the international agenda. Agriculture – namely its agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors – now faces the double challenge of dealing with the impact of climate change at the same time that it must increase production to meet the food demands of a global population projected to reach 9.1 billion by 2050. Looking ahead, FAO recognizes that these two challenges must be addressed together. Climate change adaptation, a must for the agricultural sectors, will require substantial technical and financial investments in order to achieve food and nutrition security, particularly in food-insecure developing countries.
