Impacts of climate change on Korean agriculture and its counterstrategies

Related Document
Frame of Image us impacts on Korean agriculture, such as the change in locations suitable for crop cultivation and the increase in crop damage by blights and pests. Even though mitigation measures such as greenhouse gas reduction and absorption have come into effect both nationally and internationally in order to cope with the climate change, the evidence suggests the inevitability that global warming will continue for a considerable period of time. Agriculture, in particular, is very sensitive to climate change, so that countermeasures against climate change should be prepared urgently. Proper countermeasures against climate change will provide important tools for the future agriculture to plan agricultural policies and mid/long-term agricultural development plans and for the farm households to plan their farming. This report is an English edition of the final result of two-year study project on the impacts of climate change on the agricultural sector of Korea and the countermeasures against it. It analyzes the actual conditions and prospects of climate change, its impacts on Korean agriculture and the farmers’ responses to climate change. It then presents the Korean agricultural sector’s countermeasures against climate change and a master plan for adaptation to climate change. I hope that this report will serve as a basic data for understanding the impacts of climate change on Korean agriculture and establishing countermeasures against it.  I would like to acknowledge all the people who h

Abstract

The average temperature in Korea has increased by 1.5℃ over the last 100 years, the winter season has become shorter with a longer summer season, and the time for the blooming of spring flowers has become earlier due to global warning. As a result of these changes, agricultural productivity has decreased, the cultivation regions for crops have moved northward, and damages from winter pests has increased. Scientific diagnosis and evaluation of climate change is very important in setting a vision for future farming and the direction for agricultural policy. It will provide useful information for the establishment of countermeasures such as long-term regional agricultural development plans and farm household planning.
