Without significant global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, Colombia will have 60% less land suitable for rice production by the 2050s. Due primarily to increased temperatures and decreased rainfall — as opposed to sea-level rise, which is the driver of projected change to rice production in some Asian countries — the research shows suitable conditions will need to be found at higher elevations when low-altitude fields are too hot or dry for irrigated rice.
