Abstract: The neg­a­tive effects of cli­mate change are felt in the form of ris­ing tem­per­a­tures, weath­er vari­abil­i­ty, shift­ing bound­aries of agro-ecosys­tems, the spread of inva­sive species and pests, and more fre­quent extreme weath­er events. Cli­mate change reduces crop yields, the nutri­tion­al qual­i­ty of most cere­als, and low­ers pro­duc­tiv­i­ty in the live­stock sec­tor. In this regard, sub­stan­tial invest­ment in adap­ta­tion will be required to main­tain cur­rent yields and to achieve increas­es in food pro­duc­tion and qual­i­ty to meet food needs under the expect­ed expo­nen­tial growth of the world’s pop­u­la­tion.
Key words: cli­mate change, agri­cul­ture, resilience, adap­ta­tion, CAP
