How climate change impacts agriculture

By Sarah Elzas

France’s annual agricultural fair is this year taking on the issue of climate change. Some 20 percent of France’s greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture. Reducing them is key, as Paris prepares to host the UN climate conference aimed at finding a global compromise on global emissions. Farmers are also learning how to adapt to the effects of the emissions. RFI met researchers looking at how climate change affects one of France’s top products: wine.
