Abstract

Agriculture has featured prominently in the UNFCCC technical discussions but is largely absent from the formal negotiation processes. There is also a growing divide between how developed and developing countries frame solutions to the impacts of climate change on agriculture, which is limiting recognition of solutions that integrate mitigation and adaptation opportunities, such as climate-smart agriculture.
