Abstract:

Adaptation to climate change impacts is increasingly recognized as a key priority among the challenges that the agricultural sector is facing. In four OECD countries that were analyzed, as well as at the European Union (EU)-level, the focus is on reducing risks and vulnerability and increasing overall resilience of agricultural systems so that they are better able to respond to an array of challenges, including climate change. There are two predominant approaches or frameworks that are used to guide policy development: vulnerability- and risk-based. Risk-based frameworks assist decision-makers in evaluating risks due to climate change impacts and associated consequences, giving consideration to the context of uncertainties and identifying measures to reduce risks. The vulnerability-based frameworks are centered on identifying the vulnerability of agricultural systems in the context of current and future changes, giving consideration to exposure (including to climate impacts), sensitivity of agricultural systems and the available capacity of systems to address the exposure. Compared to risk-based frameworks, approaches centered on vulnerability assessment predominantly aim to increase capacities of agricultural systems and thus reduce it sensitivity to multiple stresses including climate change.
