Food production should play a key role in global climate change negotiations according to a paper from the Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change.

The paper has just been published in Science and demonstrates how research into agricultural practices can not only address food security, but also provide solutions to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.

CSIRO Chief Executive Megan Clark is a co-author of the paper and hopes that the 18th Conference of the Parties  (COP18) in Qatar later this year will recognise that food security and climate change are intimately linked.
