dc.description<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <p>Climate change affects food production in many regions, including lost crops and dwindling employment opportunities. These impacts will become more severe by 2030 and beyond, putting at risk global food security and the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people. Now is the time to scale up efforts to reshape the agriculture sector to support farmers, avoid the extensification of food production, improve the productivity of farms, build resilience and reduce emissions.</p> <p>This paper aims to help countries think through the process of enhancing their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) by including strengthened actions in the agriculture sector. It highlights the need for tailor-made approaches&#160;suited to a country&#8217;s unique set of circumstances. It identifies a range of possible actions for climate&#160;change adaptation and mitigation in the agriculture sector, given the right enabling environment,&#160;and offers examples of how these actions can be included in an enhanced NDC.</p> </body> </html>en_US
