The National Agriculture and Livestock Policy provide the basis to make PNG agriculture more resilient to climate change. It identifies and adopts new varieties of crops, especially thermal resistant crops and alternative cropping pat-terns, capable of withstanding extremes of whether, long dry spells, flooding, and variable moisture availability. Agricul-ture will need to be progressively adapted to projected climate change and our agricultural research systems must be ori-ented to monitor and evaluate climate change and recommended changes in agriculture practices accordingly.
