Selection of Actual Preparedness Strategies for Dealing with Climate, as Adopted in Animal Husbandry
Three tenants of Article 2 of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), by which, for their preparedness, decision makers are to assess progress in stabilizing greenhouse gas concentrations to levels which will prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with climate change are: (i) allow ecosystems to adapt naturally to climate change, (ii) ensure that food production is not threatened and (iii) enable economic development to proceed in a sustainable manner (Smith et al. 2009).
