Food Security and the Changing Climate: Case Studies of Community Adaptation Strategies


Climate change is damaging the wide natural resource base on which millions of people in Asia depend for livelihood. Intense rainfall and flooding, prolonged drought, storm surges and other climate-related stresses have impacted small farming systems’ access to land, water, and other productive resources. Farmers have, however, responded to environmental changes by gradually changing their agricultural practices, developing new varieties of crops and innovating to maintain productivity Through documentation of different climate change resilient practices, PAN AP aims to conduct an Asia-wide climate change campaign which will showcase biodiversity-based ecological agriculture as a way forward in responding to climate change related crises in food and agriculture.
