➔ Land-based agriculture is the sector worst affected by climate change, while global demand for food and agricultural products is booming

➔ Africa is most vulnerable, but several large Asian economies, small islands, and parts of Latin America also suffer

➔ The worst-affected economies have the highest shares of agricultural workers, so impacts will likely worsen national unemployment

➔ Adaptation responses abound, but technical solutions are not viable where farmers lack the means to take measures or finance them

➔ Extreme effects on rural subsistence farmers clearly delays human development, causing new food emergencies
