Agriculture – Images Africa

What’s in it for Africa highlights the strong adverse effects of climate change on agriculture: floods, drought, shifts in the timing and amount of rainfall, and high temperatures associated with climate change could directly affect crop and livestock productivity. Soil erosion caused by more frequent heavy storms, and the spread of pests and diseases affecting crops and livestock caused by warmer temperatures and other changes in climatic conditions could indirectly affect food security.

According to What’s in it for Africa, part of Africa’s vulnerability lies in the fact that recent development gains have been in climate-sensitive sectors. Economically, many Africans depend for food, fibre and income on primary sectors such as agriculture and fisheries, sectors which are affected by rising temperatures, rising sea levels and erratic rainfall. Reduced crop productivity is associated with heat and drought stress and will have strong adverse effects on regional, national and household livelihood and food security. Solutions put forward by the report include technological adaptation responses, enhancing smallholder access to credit and other critical production resources, diversifying livelihoods, strengthening institutions at local, national and regional levels to support agriculture, gender- orientated policy and agronomic adaptation responses.
