With funding from AFD’s Adapt’Action Facility, a study led by GRET has been conducted over a three-year period to contribute to Tunisia’s national policy for the adaptation of agriculture to climate change. This study was conducted for the Ministry of Agriculture, Hydraulic Resources and Fisheries. Designed on a national scale for the 2050 and 2100 horizons, it is based on a multidimensional analysis and mobilizes several tools for analyzing vulnerability and climate impacts in 5 key areas of food production: cereals, olives, rangelands, fishing and water.
The main conclusion is that all the pillars of food security will be undermined by climate change, with a significant worsening after 2050 if bold measures to transform the foundations of agricultural policy are not implemented in favor of farmers (access to land in particular), women, young people and their organizations.
This bistro aims to present the conclusions of this study. Denis Pommier, consultant and agro-economist, coordinated the team in charge of the study, which was composed of nine experts from different disciplines. He has a rich background in agricultural and rural development, formulation and evaluation of public policies in Central and South America, West Africa and Tunisia.
