Climatic change and food production


, : Climatic change and food production. Food Policy 1(4): 301-312

Small changes in climate can have a disproportionate influence on the availability of food when, as now, world reserves are low. Evidence for climatic change is reviewed and it is concluded that the climate is likely to be much more variable in future than it has been in the middle decades of this century. Longer periods of unfavourable weather in some of the major agricultural areas are expected.
