Optimising the use of natural resources for food production in the context of changing climate is an increasingly important issue. Optimisation techniques have been shown to be remarkably effective for planning problems, and tools regional planners and farmers can use to determine the viability of agricultural land use planning into the future. This paper systematically reviews the recent literature in this area and draws out the key emerging themes: few studies to date have explicitly incorporated climate projections into optimisation models; increased tension for water resources between stakeholders; and various agricultural production systems of complex versions of crop planning. From this review it can be seen that increasing concentration on the use of climate projection models within agriculturally-oriented optimisation processes is a necessity.
