Agriculture vs. climate change: Can we feed the world with a warmer planet?



Global agricultural production is already being affected by climate change. From plant growth to crop yields, our food security is being challenged on multiple fronts, with droughts, higher temperatures and flooding all taking their toll.

As weather patterns become more variable across the globe, what can be done to make our food crops more resilient to a warming world?

In this Climate Now debate, our panel of experts will discuss these issues in depth, to uncover how we can prepare our agricultural systems for the changes to come while helping the industry reduce its carbon footprint.
