The dry areas are particularly vulnerable to climate change. Agricultural research for development will help communities cope with rising temperatures and water scarcity – strengthening their resilience, preventing displacement, and developing the lessons that other regions can use to support their own adaptation strategies.

As most countries included agriculture adaptation and mitigation in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the Paris Agreement, there is real need and opportunity to bring information, evidence and science into the policymaking processes.

Experts explore the land and water advantage challenges around small-scale farming systems in Asia and Africa.
"Land and water are the absolute nexus of agriculture - there is no agriculture without land and water.” Theo de Jager, World Farmers' Organization.
Planned Relocation is a growing issue on the climate displacement agenda. In a number of countries, governments plan to resettle entire communities impacted by climate change. Guidelines for this process – known as Planned Relocation – are being developed, but lessons from the ground point to additional important issues to be addressed.
Climate Risk Index shows vulnerability of small island states
Increased intensity of storms takes a toll on small island states and poor countries / Since 1997, over 520,000 people have been killed by more than 11,000 extreme weather events

October 25, 2017 – Climate change may lead to an increase in malaria in certain spots around the world. But in other places, it may have little or no impact on the mosquito-borne disease, according to an expert panel convened at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

A recently published book chapter examines the current literature on mixec livestock-crop systems and offers conclusions for future research and policy.

The central instruments for implementing the Paris Agreement are the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). These are climate action plans submitted by countries to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at COP 21.
This Resilience Scan summarises writing and debates in the field of resilience during the second quarter of 2017. It comprises an 'expert view' on some of the emerging issues for transboundary adaptation, an analysis of blogs from the past six months, and summaries of high-impact grey literature and academic journal articles. The final chapter synthesises the insights from literature in terms of five characteristics of resilience: awareness, diversity, self-regulation, integration and adaptiveness.
Although the factors driving migration are diverse, we should not ignore food insecurity. On World Food Day we argue that one solution to the migration crisis is a sustained effort to strengthen the resilience of agriculture against a back-drop of rising temperatures and increasing water scarcity.
Conflict and instability are widely seen as the principal factors driving the migration crisis – but food insecurity, poverty and extreme weather events linked to climate change such as drought also play an important role.
