Implications for food production of adaptation to environmental change with an ageing agricultural sector

Category: Demography and Environment

Who's involved?

The research is carried out in collaboration with researchers from Department of Zoology.  It addresses two key elements of the food security debate: the role of environmental change, climate and insects, and the structure of the farming population, age and gender. The key research question is addressing the adaptation to environmental change, brought on by both climate change and land use changes, requiring modern adaptive methods of farming at a time when the farming population is ageing. The case study area is North Vietnam, where the programme has a collaboration with COHED, Centre for Community, Health and Development.
