Abstract [en]

This paper serves as an input for the thematic, regional and political processes of the 5th WorldWater Forum and focuses on the challenges related to water, climate change and food security.Recent publications related to the anticipated impacts of climate change on water and agricultureare comprehensive, but a global analysis of specific impacts remains limited. The papersummarizes recent food production and food security trends and provides an overview of howclimate change, through impacts on global hydrology, could impact food production, and consequentlyfood security, in some key farming systems. However, as climate change is but oneof many drivers of agriculture, climate change impacts need to be appreciated in relation tospecific farming systems in order to identify appropriate adaptation measures. The paper highlightskey drivers and presents possible responses, emphasizing that the scope of policyresponse will need to be broad if water institutions are to be effective in coping with climatechange.
