    There are different possibilities to finance climate change activities. Some are market based, others are not. Within this last category, there is a possibility to launch Payment of Environmental Services PES1. Whatever activities are launched to cope with climate change issues should bring finance, ecosystems protection as well as poverty reduction in developing countries. However it is a complex and difficult path accessing climate change funds, which is also not really tailored for developing countries. Investment agriculture programmes are recognized to be a possible solution to climate change. Appraising their carbon balance is a way to highlight their capacity to cope with climate change issues. Climate change issues should not be seen as a new trend that will imply new conditions for developing countries. It is worth seeing the opportunities that could be brought by integrating climate change policies in the objectives of development.

    Recently food prices have once again shown an upward trend, kindling fears of another food price crisis along the lines of that experienced in 2007-2008. FAO recently signaled that its global food price index hit a new record high in February. Greater attention is now being given to climatic changes as one of the drivers of these price increases. FAO indicated that some food prices have more than doubled this year due in part to weather problems in key producing countries, which curbed global pr oduction of wheat, corn and sugar. “On a global level, increasingly unpredictable weather patterns will lead to falling agricultural production and higher food prices, leading to food insecurity,” the UNFCCC Secretary stated in an address delivered on 15 February 2011.
