One of a series of five outputs produced under a small project for the Renewable Natural Resources and Agriculture Team of the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The objective of the project was to identify the implications of climate change for key areas of DFID’s Agricultural Policy and the Renewable Natural Resources and Agriculture (RNRA) Team portfolio and to produce a  series of practical outputs to assist the RNRA team in programme implementation and communication. This report offers an analysis of a number of different climate change impact scenarios and possible effects on agriculture and suggests that the principles and priorities of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) Policy Paper – Growth and Poverty Reduction: The role of Agriculture – appear robust in the face of climate change.
