Agriculture in focus

The latest IPCC climate impacts report (http://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg2/) suggests that food production could be compromised by climate change over the coming century.  Strategies to bolster agricultural production and safeguard food supplies for some of the most vulnerable – in the wake of continued warming and an increase in the prevalence of extreme events – are discussed in a web focus that accompanies this month’s issue of Nature Geoscience (http://www.nature.com/ngeo/focus/agriculture/index.html).  The importance of developing region-specific solutions and legislation that protects the interests of local land owners is explored.
