Climate change is already threatening the livelihoods and food security of millions of farmers, especially smallholders, reducing crop yields and increasing the incidence of animal diseases. In only a few years, this could lead to higher food prices, up to 84% by 2050, and increased livelihood insecurity for farmers, especially in lowand middleincome countries. Climate change is also affecting soil health and reducing biodiversity, two essential elements for food production.  

To help address these issues, CGIAR is organizing a number of Bonn Climate Change Conference side events. Watch all SB 56 side events live or on demand.
