Farmers in the developing world are challenged to produce enough food to satiate growing populations. They also care for fields, pastures, and surrounding resources. But these tasks are becoming far more difficult due to unpredictable climates characterized by extreme weather events and changing growing seasons. IFPRI researchers are dedicated to helping farmers achieve the triple win of adapting to climate change, increasing crop yields, and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. The Institute develops adaptation and mitigation strategies, including those that show how alternative policies, institutions, and investments to address climate change will positively impact agriculture, food and nutrition security, and poor people.
