Special Issue "Impacts of Climate Change on Global Food System"
A special issue of Environments (ISSN 2076-3298).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2018)
Despite attempts to increase agriculture production, access to food or food security, as it is more commonly called now, remains an unfulfilled dream for over 800 million of the world’s population. Recent studies have indicated that the global food system over the next 40 years will experience significant pressure due to convergence of multiple factors, including population growth, low public-sector investment in agriculture, practice of traditional farming activities, lack of access to inputs and credits, volatility of food market, and unequal land distribution. Any one of these factors will likely pose significant challenges, but together they constitute a major threat to food security. Overarching all of these issues is the impending threat associated with the uncertainty of changing climate and its consequences in global and regional food production. Understanding potential consequences of climate change to food production is a useful precursor to assessing impacts and adaptation needs for future. The papers in this Special Issue will build on the insight that effective responses to climate change require careful assessment of the impacts and draws attention to the broader adaptive practices. More specifically, this Special Issue focuses on analyzing technological and institutional innovation in the contexts of adaptation to climate change and associated variability to food security. More specifically, we encourage case study that shed light on best practices of climate adaptation in response of food security.Dr. Netra Chhetri
