Climate change and agriculture Based on some of the past experiences indicated above, impact of climate change on agriculture will be one of the major deciding factors influencing the future food security of mankind on the earth. Agriculture is not only sensitive to climate changeFile Size: KB. This book seeks to discover and to assess the vulnerability of climate change on mangrove flora and fauna, their role in carbon sequestration and some interesting case studies by some groups of dedicated researchers that may serve as the basis of future climate related : Springer India.

Project description. Title: Adaptation of Agro-Ecosystems to Climate Change in Ghana (AAESCC) Commissioned by: German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Country: Ghana Lead executing agency: Ministry for Food and Agriculture Overall term: to Context. Climate change is already having a considerable impact on agriculture in Ghana. Ongoing climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing the planet. Climate change refers to a trend of significant fluctuations in major weather patterns and conditions brought about by increased greenhouse gases. The trend has seen significant variations in temperature, rain, wind, and other factors over a period of ance of Addressing Climate ChangeAn.

  We quantify the risks of climate-induced changes in key ecosystem processes during the 21st century by forcing a dynamic global vegetation model with multiple scenarios from 16 climate models and mapping the proportions of model runs showing forest/nonforest shifts or exceedance of natural variability in wildfire frequency and freshwater supply. Our analysis does not assign Cited by: Framing Ecosystem-based Adaptation to Climate Change iii PREFACE Coastal communities in many parts of Asia are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, with increased severity of extreme weather events directly affecting the lives of millions of people and damaging the ecosystems and resources they rely on for everyday survival.

Climate Change and Agricultural Ecosystems incorporates both theoretical and practical aspects, and serves as base line information for future research. This book is a valuable resource for those working in environmental sciences, soil sciences, agricultural microbiology, plant pathology, and agronomy.

Using satellite data and a novel analytical approach, a new index of the sensitivity of vegetation to climate variability is developed, revealing areas of high sensitivity that include tundra Cited by:   Climate variability and climate extremes are important climatic determinants of plant growth, species distribution and net primary productivity.
