Adapting agriculture to climate change should have twin purposes: adapting to prevent further damage to the environment, and adapting to produce food despite the impact of climate change. The increasing intensity and frequency of storms, flooding and draught have great impact on agriculture and, therefore, on the food supply.
The uncertainties associated with climate change have a strong impact on farmers worldwide. It is difficult for them to know when and what to plant when the weather pattern is erratic and changing. In Africa, the estimate is that 25-42 percent of species habitat could be lost. This would have a devastating effect on both food and non-food crops. In developing countries, up to 11 percent of cropland could be affected by climate change.
