The ongoing march forward of climate change and the strong ties of greenhouse gas emissions with income and development portend a need for decision making on adaptation and mitigation. Climate sensitive sectors, such as agriculture, will need to increasingly adapt to climate change and participate in its mitigation. This fact also means that understanding the potential for agricultural adaptation and mitigation, as well as how such mitigation and adaptation behavior will occur and can be incentivized, is important in the science, policy and stakeholder communities.
This Special Issue aims to both review and contribute to the state-of-art regarding agricultural adaptation and mitigation options and actions in both developing and developed countries. It will provide background pieces on options, empirical investigation of potential agricultural adaptation and mitigation strategies, and discuss opportunities and challenges in facilitating agricultural climate change adaptation and mitigation.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- What things could be done in agricultural adaptation?
- What things could be done in agricultural mitigation?
- Who will adapt and where is policy needed to facilitate adaptation?
- What are the approaches to increase agricultural participation in mitigation and what future actions may be needed?
