Southern African Agriculture and Climate Change

Check out the new IFPRI research monograph about climate change and agriculture in Southern Africa. This book is the second of 3 books looking at the impacts of climate change on agriculture in Africa. The first was released in the spring and focused on West Africa (book 1). The third and final book in this series focuses on East Africa and will be released by the end of the year.

This book like the one on West Africa has chapters focusing on the unique challenges each country in Southern Africa will face due to climate change. The book is free to download in whole, or by chapter if you are only interested in a particular country or want to reduce your downloading time.

West African Agriculture and Climate Change

Check out the new IFPRI research monograph about climate change and agriculture in West Africa. I’ve been working off and on helping out with the project (mostly on modeling methodology and graphs) for the last year. It is a pretty interesting book with chapters focused on the countries of West Africa and the challenges they may face due to climate change. The book is freely accessible, and you can download chapters if you are only interested in a subset of the countries studied.
