  • Climate change will have serious and adverse consequences for many development sectors in Africa, and threatens the economies and livelihoods of many African countries.

    World Bank Report Climate Change in Africa

  • No continent will be struck as severely by the impacts of climate change as Africa. Given its geographical position, the continent will be particularly vulnerable due to the considerably limited adaptive capacity, exacerbated by widespread poverty and the existing low levels of development.

    IPCC Report Fact Sheet

  • By 2020, in some countries, yields from rain-fed agriculture could be reduced by up to 50%. Agricultural production, including access to food, in many African countries is projected to be severely compromised. This would further adversely affect food security and exacerbate malnutrition.
