This briefing note offers an overview of what the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) AR5 has to say on the impacts of climate change on food and farming – particularly the food and farming of the half a billion small-scale croppers, livestock keepers and fishers who are most immediately dependent on agricultural systems for their livelihoods. The briefing note starts with where we are at with climate change in the 2010s, then looks ahead 15 years to impacts and adaptation in the 2030s, before touching finally on the 2050s and beyond.
