Special Issue "Selected Papers from Agriculture and Food Sustainability: New Climate Change Scenarios"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2021.
Interests: agrodiversity; genetic resources; plant biochemistry; biochemistry of abiotic stresses
Climate change is expected to aggravate in the next 30–50 years, resulting in more extreme weather occurrences, increased evaporative demand of water, and increasing carbon dioxide, which will distinctly affect agriculture, agrosystems, and crop productivity worldwide. Climate change is a global concern, and there is an urgent demand for global and local strategies in these new climate scenarios to ensure food sustainability for a growing world population. The Symposium “Agriculture and Food Sustainability: New Climate Change Scenarios”, provides an excellent opportunity for discussion and exchange of knowledge and experience between students, researchers, industry members, stakeholders, and policymakers that share an interest or recent findings regarding climate change and food sustainability. The main topics of the Symposium include the current status, advances, and challenges in the impacts of climate change in agriculture; crop resilience to biotic and abiotic stresses; water management in agriculture; climate-smart agriculture; and the impact of climate change on food security and diet.
