CAN Submission to KJWA: Socioeconomic and Food Security Dimensions of Climate Change in the Agricultural Sector, November 2020

The current global food system is both a victim and a driver of climate change. Agriculture is a sector that is highly vulnerable to the impacts associated with the rise in global temperatures and changes in water cycles. At the same time, the sector is also a major contributor to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, land degradation and biodiversity loss. Agriculture in the context of climate change has many intersecting socio-economic dimensions including food security and other issues. Some types of agriculture are more harmful, and more vulnerable than others; and there are key strategies available that can address multiple climate, food security and other socio-economic dimensions of agriculture.
