Climate smart agriculture, farm household typologies and food security An ex-ante assessment from Eastern India
(Elsevier Masson, 2018)
One of the great challenges in agricultural development and sustainable intensification is the assurance of social equity in food security oriented interventions. Development practitioners, researchers, and policy makers ...
How much does climate change add to the challenge of feeding the planet this century?
(IOP Publishing, 2019)
The impacts of climate change on crop yields, as projected by a slew of impact assessments carried out since the 1980s, have brought the issue of future food insecurity to the fore. A meta-analysis of ∼27 000 data points ...
The climate-smart village approach: framework of an integrative strategy for scaling up adaptation options in agriculture
(Resilience Alliance, 2018)
Increasing weather risks threaten agricultural production systems and food security across the world. Maintaining agricultural growth while minimizing climate shocks is crucial to building a resilient food production system ...
Urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (SDG 13): transforming agriculture and food systems
Actions on climate change (SDG 13), including in the food system, are crucial. SDG 13 needs to align with the Paris Agreement, given that UNFCCC negotiations set the framework for climate change actions. Food system actions ...
Adoption of multiple climate-smart agricultural practices in the Gangetic plains of Bihar, India
Purpose: The adoption of climate-smart agricultural practices (CSAPs) is important for sustaining Indian agriculture in the face of climate change. Despite considerable effort by both national and international agricultural ...
Multi-objective land use allocation modelling for prioritizing climate-smart agricultural interventions

Importance of considering technology growth in impact assessments of climate change on agriculture
(Elsevier; Elsevier, 2019)
Many assessments of climate change impacts on global crop yields project declines as early as the 2020s. Losses are projected to increase with time, up to 50% by the 2080s. We carry out a systematic global review and compare ...
Identifying high-yield low-emission pathways for the cereal production in South Asia
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
Increasing agricultural production to meet the growing demand for food whilst reducing agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is the major challenge under the changing climate. To develop long-term policies that address ...
Facilitating change for climate-smart agriculture through science-policy engagement
