While there is growing discussion and dialogue about climate change and agriculture, relatively little analysis and focus has been put on climate change and food systems. A narrower focus on climate change and agriculture, which is often associated with production, limits the ability to pursue a broad range of mitigation and adaptation strategies that support necessary system-level changes. Adopting a food systems perspective for climate change mitigation and adaption will be critical to…
