    Summary:

    The debate on Climate Change and Agriculture is crucial with regards to Africa's development and to the prosperity of its people. In fact, the continent is particularly vulnerable to Climate Change given the levels of poverty that characterize it.

    Climate Change in Africa materializes itself particularly through prolonged periods of drought, which seriously affect the agricultural sector. Consequently, this results in the degradation of soil quality, higher temperatures, desert encroachment, frequent sandstorms, declining water resources, falling yields in agricultural productivity, proliferation of insects, threats to food security and increased poverty on the continent.

  • ADAPTATION AU CHANGEMENT CLIMATIQUE DANS LES SECTEURS DE L’AGRICULTURE ET DE L’EAU EN AFRIQUE DE L’OUEST

    Created by: admin | 2012-07-25 13:49

    Associated Organization: CILSS/AGRHYMET

    Summary:

    L’Afrique de l’Ouest fait partie des quelques régions du monde identifiées par le Groupe intergouvernemental d’experts sur l’évolution du climat (GIEC) comme particulièrement vulnérables au changement climatique. L’augmentation de la température et l’accroissement de la variabilité climatique posent aujourd’hui déjà de nombreuses contraintes pour la gestion des ressources en eau et l’agriculture, principal moyen de subsistance des populations. Le changement climatique risque ainsi d’amplifier les vulnérabilités socio-économiques auxquelles les populations de la sous-région font face.


  • Review of Adaptation Action

    Created by: AdaptationPartnership | 2012-03-20 19:58

    Associated Organization: Adaptation Partnership / IISD

    Summary:

    As part of our effort to catalyze effective adaptation action, the Adaptation Partnership commissioned a review of planned and existing adaptation activities in 12 sub-regions across Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. These reviews provide an inventory of regional and country-level adaptation activities and a summary of key adaptation priorities, based on documents like the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change's National Adaptation Programs of Action and National Communications.  They also identify gaps and opportunities for scaling up and enhancing collaboration.

    Created by: admin | 2012-02-22 16:22

    Associated Organization: AfricaAdapt

    Summary:

    Climate change and variability is a challenge to Africa’s food security, affecting both the quantity and quality of agricultural production.

     

    Against this background, increasing voices are questioning whether local seeds, the yardstick of farmers' agro economic sovereignty and yet severely affected by the adverse effects of climate change, are still enough to secure food security amongst African households.

    Associated Organization: UNEP

    Summary: Recent extreme weather events including floods, heat waves, and droughts present a vivid image of the direction the world is heading. As climate change intensifies, more events like these, combined with longer-term changes in the climate's average state - including rising seas, melting glaciers, and shifting precipitation patterns - will have profound impacts on people, ecosystems and infrastructure.
