This annual report monitors and evaluates agricultural policies in 54 countries, including the 38 OECD countries, the five non-OECD EU Member States, and 11 emerging economies.

Agriculture is one of the most vulnerable sectors to climate change. Warmer seasons, changes in precipitation and more frequent and severe extreme weather events have already impacted agricultural production in many countries, with effects on food price volatility and food security. While farmers take adaptation measures on their own, government policies play an important role in complementing these efforts and help to enhance their capacity to adapt to various climate risks. This session will explore how policies can steer effective adaptation of agriculture to climate change. Through a sharing of examples of policy measures, it will raise awareness of existing policy initiatives in different production and climate contexts and discuss what further policy actions are needed to limit the future impacts of climate change on agriculture and food supplies.
