L'agriculture intelligente face au climat (AIC) gagne du terrain à mesure que les pays développent des technologies et des pratiques pour lutter contre les effets du changement climatique.

Des questions subsistent sur les aspects particuliers à l’AIC et aux pratiques spécifiques qui doivent être mises en œuvre pour qu’on puisse parler d’AIC.
