Beautifully presented with full-colour photographs and accessible text, this booklet showcases 16 initiatives that are having a widespread impact on food security, adaptation to climate change and climate change mitigation. With examples from the developed and developing world, the stories show the potential of agriculture to be more resilient and protect farmers against future changes in weather patterns, pests and diseases, and to slow the rate of climate change itself. The initiatives include agricultural interventions, such as restoring degraded land in the Sahel and sustainable intensification of rice production in Vietnam. They also address climate-related risks – as with a programme in Ethiopia helping resource-poor farmers to rebuild their resources and boost food security, and a weather-based insurance scheme in India encouraging smallholder farmers to take judicious risks to raise their production. A final chapter provides cases pertaining to policies and institutions that underpin adaptation to and mitigation of climate change. Examples here include Denmark’s Green Growth policy, which has helped reduce the agriculture sector’s carbon footprint. A useful list of further reading is provided at the end for those who wish to find out more on this inspiring subject.
