Latest IPCC report on Climate Change: Agriculture, a growing focus of concern.

The most up to date report on Climate Change has been released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The Special Report on Global warming of 1.5°C, which was commissioned under the Paris Climate Change Agreement, examines projected climate change, potential impacts and associated risks of a human induced warming world.

There is a growing focus on two sides of agriculture impacts, global crop yields due to the impacts of climate change and the impact of agricultural emissions on a warming planet. Dietary change policy proposes eating locally grown foods and reduce the transport carbon footprint, as well as watering policies and possible mixed stock farming.

Global warming is likely to reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 if it continues to increase at the current rate.
