Weathering the Storm for Agriculture
An accessible and well written practical guide has been released to help farmers and land managers who wish to improve their business resilience to extreme weather and the changing climate :
Weathering the Storm for Agriculture [
] covers a wide range of interdependent issues and encourages farmers to identify, prioritise and mitigating risks. It also demonstrates some of the opportunities for farmers and co-benefits of action such as soil health, biodiversity net gain and success in diversification.
A helpful visual explanation of some key projected changes over time is provided in an accompanying leaflet [
]. This summaries the impacts of 2C and 4C global average temperature scenarios by the end of the century (‘managed transition’ and ‘runaway changes’ respectively), including temperature and rainfall trends, extreme weather events and sea level rise.
Although the focus here is on farming, there are synergies and interdependencies with other activities and sectors which are useful to be aware of.
