Climate Change: Agriculture Threatened in Southern Asia and Africa

18 february 2008

An American study published on February 1 in Science magazine revealed that wheat, rice and corn crops in southern Asia and Africa may be the most severely affected by climate change between now and 2030, which would affect food security in those regions.

Indeed, David B. Lobell's team at Stanford University (United States) succeeded in using weather models to identify the geographical zones where the agricultural sector would feel the full force of climate change, both in terms of rising temperatures and changing precipitation.

The researchers recommend using adaptation measures to better orient agricultural policies and implement measures such as developing new crop varieties and improving irrigation systems.

As the international community begins to evaluate the risks caused by climate change, based on this type of research and on the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it is becoming clear that priority should be placed on the agricultural sector, highlighting the importance of ensuring food security and combating famine and poverty.
