Climate change and a growing global population are putting additional pressure on natural resources and planetary boundaries? The food and agriculture sector lies at the heart of the development process and is both a main cause of, and solution to, the world’s environmental (e.g. climate) and social (e.g. unsatisfied basic needs) problems. Coping with the spreading global crisis requires focusing on small-scale food producers as a driving force towards socially fair and ecologically sustainable agriculture systems. Over the millennia, small-scale producers have evolved to more resilient and climate-adapted forms of agriculture which are essential to biodiversity and natural resources conservation, as well as to meeting the poverty and hunger challenge? Nevertheless, small-scale food producers around the world face enormous challenges meeting their food needs and contributing to the food security of their communities and countries. These challenges are compounded by climate change. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and more severe, threatening the reliability and productivity of agriculture, exacerbating already extreme levels of poverty, and reinforcing persistent inequality and chronic undernutrition. Without efforts to address and adapt to climate change, more erratic weather will result in lower yields for the basic staple grains? ual Objetivo Primário do Produto?
