One of the great challenges facing global agriculture in the coming decades is how to deal with the negative effects of climate change. These effects are projected to affect the populations with both the least capacity to adapt and the greatest need for improved agricultural performance to achieve food security and reduce poverty (Thornton and Lipper, 2013). Agricultural systems will need to be transformed if global food security and poverty reduction is to be achieved in a sustainable way. The need to reduce food insecurity, and to respond to the climate change effects which are already occurring, are urgent problems that may well involve new approaches embedded in appropriate enabling environments, if agricultural system transformations that contribute to global, regional and national development goals are to be achieved.
