Climate Change and China's Agricultural Sector: An Overview of Impacts, Adaptation and Mitigation

ICTSD-IPC Platform on Climate Change, Agriculture and Trade, Issue Brief No. 5

Most of the focus regarding climate change and China revolves around the energy and manufacturing sectors. While it receives considerably less attention, the agricultural sector is not an insignificant source of emissions. At the same time, however, there is opportunity for China's agricultural sector to play a role in adopting production methods that reduce emissions. In addition, the potential impact of climate change on agricultural production and prices in China could have tremendous implications for both domestic and international markets.
