Mitigation and adaptation: a perfect marriage made on farms

by Daisy Ouya

To feed a burgeoning global population, agricultural production has to more than double in the coming four decades, and it must do so within the expected climate-change-related stresses. Can this growth in production happen in a way that keeps greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane and others) to a minimum? And can it at the same time help farmers adapt to worsening climates?

Evidently so, but only if we focus on low-emission farming practices that also build ecological resilience.
