Agriculture and climate change: real problems, false solutions
This report gives a brief overview on how current and proposed agricultural practices impact on climate changes, and how proposed measures for 'mitigation and adaptation' impact on agriculture. It focuses on forms of intensive, large-scale (or industrialized) agriculture. It looks at the main proposals in the negotiations for a post -2012 climate agreement. In the context of these negotiations, mitigation describes measures that deal with the causes of climate change, while adaptation encompasses measures to deal with the effects of climate change.
