Climate and Agriculture at COP18
01 November 2012

Climate and Agriculture - CIDSE position paper for the UNFCCC ‘COP 18’ summit in Doha, Qatar, November 2012

Climate change, agriculture and food security are inextricably linked, and addressing existing global hunger while preparing to feed an increasing population in the context of a changing climate is a defining challenge of our times. CIDSE wants to highlight that human rights - and particularly the right to adequate food - must be the starting point for all analysis and policy development on climate change, agriculture and food security. This means that consistency between climate and food policies is crucial, and that a focus on small scale farmers adaptation needs must be at the centre of climate policies dealing with agriculture.
