Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change in California Agriculture
CA Energy Commission (CEC)
This study developed a spatially explicit agricultural vulnerability index for California derived from 22 climate, crop, land use, and socioeconomic variables. Since farmland throughout the state is vulnerable to urbanization, the study also used urban growth projections for 2050 to examine the possible impacts on statewide agricultural production, land use patterns, and soils. The study also examined two on‐farm case studies that highlight the possible benefits of innovative agricultural practices that link adaptation and mitigation (85).
