This book collects wide-ranging contributions such as case studies, reviews, reports on technological developments, outputs of research/studies, and examples of successful projects, presenting current knowledge and raising awareness to help the agriculture and forestry sectors find solutions for mitigating climate variability and adapting to change.

Climate change and variability impacts the primary sector, and will unavoidably affect such settlements in a direct and indirect way. The key towards understanding such impacts on settlements lies in understanding climate change impacts on agriculture, forestry and fisheries itself, before trying to identify and understand those impacts.

Changes in average climate conditions and climate variability could have significant effects on agriculture in many parts of the humid and sub-humid tropics.

Agriculture in these regions, particularly in the sub-humid areas, is vulnerable to many environmental hazards -including frequent floods, droughts, tropical cyclones and storm surges and.

While Australian farmers are well accustomed to climate variability, the emergence of climate change is. Agriculture contributes to climate change both by anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases and by the conversion of non-agricultural land such as forests into agricultural land.

Agriculture, forestry and land-use change contributed around 20 to 25% of global annual emissions in Planning for Climate Variability. The Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry recognizes that climate variability presents many challenges and opportunities at the local level.

Fortunately, many Maine communities are taking action today to address these challenges and seize these opportunities. One of the major challenges facing humankind is to provide an equitable standard of living for this and future generations: adequate food, water and energy, safe shelter and a healthy environment.

The AFRI Resilient Agroecosystems in a Changing Climate Challenge Area focuses on understanding the interaction between climate variability and agricultural production systems so that we can develop the plants, animals and management systems that will be robust and productive under changing.

The relationships among climate change, agriculture and food security are complex and dynamic. Agriculture and food systems are heavily influenced by socio-economic conditions such as changing patterns of consumption, macro-economic policies, political conflict and the spread of disease.
