In August 2012, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), responding to a request from the United Nations’ Committee on Food Security, asked experts from CGIAR’s 15 research centers to summarize the effects of climate change on 22 of the most important agricultural commodities and 3 critical natural resources in the developing world.
CCAFS has published a brief which reviews key issues raised in the crop, commodity and natural resource summaries, each of which affects the viability of food production in the near future.
