November 2nd, 2009

Building Climate Resilience in the Agriculture Sector of Asia and the Pacific is an Asia Development Bank (ADB) sponsored agriculture sector study, carried out by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). It uses predictions of global climate models to develop scenarios to 2050 for Asia and to derive implications for food security. The study recommends cost-effective adaptation responses that could build greater climate resilience into the agriculture sector in Asia and the Pacific.
