New Book Shows How Farmers Can Adapt to Climate Change

A new book shows Pacific farmers and foresters what adaptations can be used to cope with climate change over the next 70 or so years.

Compiled by scientists working with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, the book details the impacts of climate change on agriculture and agroforestry, and what can be done to mitigate it.

One of the editors, scientist Brian Dawson, said there were still gaps in the knowledge but what they have ascertained is many crops are more resilient to climate change than they had expected.

He said they isolated many adaptation techniques that farmers can adopt to reduce their vulnerability to climate change.
