This first of three studies sponsored by the Asian Development Bank and carried out by the International Food Policy Research Institute, this report highlights cost-effective strategies to boost agriculture in Asia and the Pacific in the face of climate change. The authors use models to predict global climate scenarios up to 2050 and forecast implications for Asia's food security.

The report suggests pro-growth, pro-poor development policies, investment in agricultural research and technologies and regional cooperation as effective strategies for building climate resilience.
