This publication provides an overview of some the most important land-related environmental and climate change problems that the world is facing. Land, Environment and Climate Change offers an overview of the relationship between land tenure, land management approaches and the environment.

Current perceptions of agriculture are too limited, according to expert Jan Douwe van der Ploeg, who would like to see donors embrace and harness the resilience and adaptability of small scale farmers. Donors should not overlook the advantages of small scale agricultural production, which offers greater flexibility particularly in times of shifting market demands, economic uncertainty and threats of climate change.

The roaming farming practices of nomadic pastoralists may appear to have altered little in hundreds of years, but in today’s unpredictable age of climate change these ancient practices may hold the key to flexible farming in hostile environments and donors should do more to support them, say experts.
To date, the agricultural sector, as a net green house gas producer, has largely been seen as part of the climate change problem. But Dr Alex De Pinto of the International Food Policy Research Institute wants to see farmers become part of the climate change solution. Whether it’s through livestock rearing, rice production or the drying of peat, the world’s agricultural producers are widely accepted as being responsible for between 10 and 14 percent of the world’s total Green House Gas production and thus a contributor to climate change.

When it comes to climate change, it’s a mad, mad world. That’s the message from a new EC-commissioned e-booklet, which uses the abbreviation “MAD” to outline a strategic framework for combating global warning: Mitigation, Adaptation, Development.
