Climate change has complex impacts on natural resources in general and agriculture in particular. Hence, policies that address these impacts also need to be as broad-based and still be able to target location-specific conditions of these issues. It is a challenge but one can already find a range of policies and actions off-the-shelf that can be readily employed through necessary adjustments. This presentation talks about such policies including addressing perverse incentives, providing a buffer to shocks, building resilience through re-building ecosystems base, and improving consumer choices to ensure climate-informed decisions.
