This technical document analyzes the potential impacts of climate change on crop pollination. It aims to provide a review of the literature on crop pollination, with a focus on the effects of climate change on pollinators important for global crop production, and to present an overview of available data on the temperature sensitivity of crop pollinators and entomophilous crops. It also identifies data needs and sampling techniques to answer questions related to effects of climate change on pollination, and makes recommendations on the recording and management of pollinator interactions data.
