How Will Climate Change Affect Our Global Food Supply?

 

An RFF Seminar 

 

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

12:45 - 2:00 p.m. EST

Resources for the Future

 

According to recent studies, climate change could reduce agricultural productivity, decreasing global food supplies and harming households that rely on crops, livestock, and fisheries for income. How much do we actually know about how climate change might impact agriculture? What types of policies can be developed today to help protect against the worst of these impacts?

 

At this RFF seminar, experts will examine recent research on this important topic and discuss how the United States and other countries are addressing the challenge. Panelists will present new methods to quantify the climate vulnerability of farm households, demonstrated in major studies in Africa, South Asia, and the US Pacific Northwest. They will also address recent work currently underway at the US Department of Agriculture and the World Bank.

Yusuke Kuwayama, Fellow, RFF
