Description

As a result of anthropogenic climate change, a staple of Mexican diet, culture and agriculture is at stake: maize. México is predicted to be a region at risk from climate change, comparative to other regions globally, and as a result small-scale farming and agriculture are expected to be in danger. Where do vulnerabilities intersect, what are the solutions being implemented, what are the weaknesses of these solutions and how can future solutions target critical areas of need?
