Dr. Andrew Steer, Special Envoy for Climate Change at the World Bank Group, discusses his views on the link between between agriculture and climate change adaptation and mitigation.
He says, "We really will fail if we do not incorporate agriculture into the way we think about climate change." Focusing on the concept of a "triple win" for agriculture, he highlights the need to secure farmers' livelihoods, to help them become more resilient to climate change and to help in the joint effort to reduce its future impacts globally.
Steer also illustrates the potential for agriculture-focused carbon markets in Africa and the work that the World Bank is doing in a pilot project in Kenya to this effect.
