New FAO book: ” Coping with Climate Change”

The FAO have released a new book this week, ” Coping with Climate Change”.  It is available for free on the link below.

The key message is that genetic diversity is important to coping with climate change, and that more needs to be done to understand and utilise this diversity in food production.

It warns that “time is not on our side”, and that climate change is advancing faster than expected so crops will need to have the ability to adapt to the climate quicker than before.
