Climate change will leave agriculture ‘plagued by uncertainty’

Agriculture requires a major transformation to deal with the effects of climate change, including increased irrigation and the need to move production between regions, finds a study from the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

Agriculture requires a major transformation to deal with the effects of climate change, including increased irrigation and the need to move production between regions, finds a study from the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). 

According to the study, increased temperature, changing rain levels, as well as increased CO2 atmospheric concentration could lead to an 18% decline in global caloric production from cropland.1 The IIASA also found that without careful planning for uncertain climate impacts, the chances of getting adaptation wrong are high.
