Oxfam Research Report (.pdf)

Climate change has serious implications for global food production and food security. Part One of this report uses scientific data on current changes and future scenarios to examine possible impacts on crop production in the Russian Federation. It considers what measures Russia might need to implement to achieve its desired aim of playing a leading role in ensuring global food security. Part Two uses interviews with farmers to highlight ways in which they are adapting to new climatic conditions, but also the problems those conditions are posing, particularly to smallholders. It considers what more should be done to support their efforts to boost their resilience and contribute to national food security.
