Abstract In line with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) this study defines climate change as any change in climate over time, whether due to natural variability or as a result of human activity. This report is a shortened version of the final study report, produced on request of FAO. The purpose of the shortened report is twofold: (1) to serve as a planning document to sharpen the climate change focus of research, extension and communication for development institutions (including FAO’s) in developing effective and relevant support activities for their partners and (2) to communicate the climate change support activities implemented by FAO in this field to potential partners and inform them about possible strategies and specific approaches that will enhance the role of extension, research and communication institutions and services for climate change adaptation (CCA). Besides introduction into the topic (section 1) the report discusses the context of climate change adaptation and its linkages with food security (section 2) and the analytical framework which has been used for the study (section 3). Subsequently, lessons learned from the case studies (section 4) are presented. A sketch of a new-style role for agriculture innovation support service agencies, including FAO (section 5) is provided. Finally, Annex 1 provides a more detailed conceptual framework linking agriculture innovation to the work of research, extension and communication for development.
