Climate Change

Climate change and agriculture are tied directly to social equity and rural development. Climate change poses enormous new challenges for food production, farmers and rural communities. IATP works at the intersection of climate and agriculture to advocate for policies and approaches that empower farmers and rural communities to develop appropriate, bottom-up solutions; reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help farmers and communities adapt; and advances a fair and just transition toward more climate resilient, agroecological systems for farmers and rural communities. Our Rural Climate Dialogues engage rural communities to take action on climate change.
