Agriculture both contributes to climate change and is affected by climate change. This sector is highly dependent on the climate, with increases in temperature and carbon dioxide (CO2), changes in extreme weather, and reductions in water availability that may harm crops and reduce yields. On the other side, agriculture also contributes to climate change, and farming activities release significant amounts of methane and nitrous oxide, two powerful greenhouse gases.
Climate change is an essential global threat often reduced to a checklist or ticked through an eco-friendly tagline. In tackling climate change, we must collaborate to build a global ecosystem that sparks inspiration and innovation in climate action.
