    Abstract

    This chapter deals with sensitivities, adaptive capacity and vulnerability of agriculture to climate change. It covers: the direct and indirect effects of changes in climate and atmospheric constituents on crop yield, soils, agricultural pests, and livestock; estimates of yield and production changes for specific localities, countries, and the world; the conditions that determine vulnerability; and adaptation potential.
