Abstract

In the paper, we will firstly depict a few key elements of interaction between agriculture and climate change. Then we propose to look at climate change adaptation, in general and in LDCs agriculture, as a required paradigm of change in development strategies, which implies, from a methodological perspective, a change in the culture of decision making and governance. We then summarise the recent development of the international higher-level policy approach to climate change adaptation, in which LDCs agriculture has a central role, together with the ‘climate finance’ framework for adaptation. We conclude by suggesting a set of open issues to be addressed in the current debate on climate adaptation within the Post-2015 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
