The following question has a paragraph from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.

How will climate change affect agriculture? In the run up to the 15th Conference of Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen in December 2009, a policy brief prepared by the Washington-based International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) carries a dire warning. It warns water sources will become more variable, droughts and floods will stress agricultural systems, some coastal food-producing areas will be inundated by the seas, and food production will fall in some places in the interior. Developing economies and the poorest of the poor likely will be hardest hit. _____.
OPTIONS
 
 1)As the brief states, ongoing negotiations to address climate change provide a unique opportunity to combine low-cost mitigation and essential adaptation outcomes with poverty reduction.
 2)However, uncertainties about where climate change will take place and how agriculture will respond make it difficult to move forward on policies to combat the effects of climate change.
 3)The global community must seize the opportunity if only to ensure the most basic of all securities – food security – does not remain a pipe dream for all of mankind.
 4)The paper advocates funding research to improve understanding of the interaction between climate change and agriculture and to find cost-effective ways of reducing agriculture’s contribution to green house gas emissions.
 5)The fact is even with the best efforts to mitigate climate change it is inevitable that the poor will be affected.
