This paper seeks to understand the role that the agriculture sector can play in romoting China's climate change mitigation efforts. In order to understand the history of agricultural and climate change policies in China, the beginning sections are devoted to these topics. In the following chapter,the impact of climate change on agricultural production is explored. Using research data that determine the primary sources of emissions within agriculture, and mitigation practices that have proved effective, potential GHG mitigation measures are proposed in the fourth chapter.Based on recommendations made by economists, the final chapter delineates agricultural policies that would incentive farmers to implement the GHG mitigation strategies outlined in the preceding chapter.
