Climate change to adversely impact grain production in China by 2030
Food production systems are particularly vulnerable to adverse impacts of climate change, and it is one of the key factors affecting food security in China. Rising temperatures reduce the growth period of grains, leading to average reductions in yields, while frequent seasonal drought places stress on the water supplies available for irrigation. Safeguarding food security, particularly food production systems, from the adverse impacts of climate change is a fundamental priority of the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
