Climate change poses significant challenges to agricultural systems worldwide, impacting farmers and their livelihoods. The increasing frequency of extreme weather events, shifts in temperature and precipitation patterns, and the rising incidence of pests and diseases all contribute to the vulnerability of agricultural production.
Climate change is expected to make agricultural development more challenging. Weather patterns are becoming less favorable in many instances, increasing the volatility of crop and livestock yields. The frequency and/or severity of extreme events is increasing as temperatures are projected to continue rising, and rainfall patterns are expected to shift more than they have already.
