Climate Change

Climate change impacts, mitigation and adaptation

One of the greatest challenges facing agriculture and the environment is climate change. Even without further warming, enhanced variability in climate can reduce the sustainability of food production and ecosystem function.

Our research increasingly contains themes of climate change and variability, but the future will require us to be more intentional with research in mitigation and adaptation solutions for our stakeholders.
