"Climate change adaptation and mitigation (CCAM) entails many challenges. Addressing these challenges requires transformational changes for which innovative solutions should be investigated. Among innovative digital technologies, the blockchain technology (BCT) has been considered to offer a unique opportunity to bring greater efficiency, transparency and traceability to the exchange of value and information in the agriculture sectors. To provide more background knowledge and insights into the promise and limitations of blockchain, this paper outlines the possible applications of BCT in agriculture and how it may be used in the context of climate change."
