Summary

Climate change impacts are already reducing crop and livestock productivity and decreasing food security for millions of people around the world—and these impacts will intensify over the coming decades. Longer-term, systemic, transformative approaches to adaptation are needed to protect rural lives and livelihoods. This report explores how climate change is affecting agriculture and the benefits that transformative approaches to adaptation offer. This report is based on three years of research to delineate the following: what transformative adaptation is and how it applies to agriculture; why it is needed and what benefits it can offer; and how it can be better integrated into research, policy, planning, and funding processes to build the long-term resilience of farmers, herders, and others involved in agricultural value chains.
