  • Climate Change and the Agri-Food Trade

    Climate change is reducing the competitiveness of agricultural exports from developing countries as far apart as Peru and Uganda, according to an ITC survey of agri-food exporters in these countries.

    The exporters call on their governments to integrate climate change into long-term, sector-specific policies and investment strategies. Among the study’s recommendations: an international climate platform to share best practices and reliable climate information; targeted training in climate-smart agriculture and sustainable certification; financing for sustainable practices and infrastructure; better public-private networks and partnerships to attract support to manage climate risks.
