: Achieving food security in the face of climate change: Summary for policy makers from the Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change
Current farming practices, including land clearing and inefficient use of fertilizers and organic residues, make agriculture a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. The Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change has reviewed the scientific evidence to identify a pathway to achieving food security in the context of climate change. Food systems must shift to better meet human needs and, in the long term, balance with planetary resources. This will demand major interventions to transform current patterns of food production, distribution and consumption.
