This chapter reviews the potential impacts of climate change on on-farm conservation of crop diversity and on the contribution that on-farm conservation can make to agricultural adaptation to climate change, and ask two questions: (1) How might climate change affect the viability of on-farm conservation of landraces in centres of crop diversity? and (2) How can on-farm conservation contribute to the adaptation of small-scale farmers to climate change?
