Climate change and food systems

FAO published the book: "Climate change and food systems". This book is the outcome of an expert consultation organized by FAO in November 2013 which gathered acknowledged experts in climate impact research.

The 11 chapters cover the latest scientific and economic evidence on climate impact assessments of crop and livestock systems. The chapters cover methodological overviews of global climate impact assessments (biophysical and economic) of food systems, as well as specific model-based analyses  focusing on a particular region (Africa, Europe, Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, South East Asia) and food systems (small grains, rice, livestock, bananas). Each chapter starts with take-home messages for non-specialist readers.
