Blurb/Shorttext:
According to IPCC (2007) poor countries and communities are some of the most vulnerable to impacts of future climate change. Most of these communities have arguably lower capacity to adapt to change and have insufficient resources to mitigate the impacts associated with global environmental change.Therefore, there is a need for urgent adaptation strategies in the agricultural sector and is required to the changes in climate especially in Africa where millions of people depend on it for survival.Africa will be hit hardest by climate change as larger areas could be stricken by yield decreases of over 50 percent by the year 2020 as a result of increasingly hotter and drier climate. This will threaten food security and people’s livelihoods in most parts of Africa. It is against this background that to be able to adapt to climate variability and change it is essential for development partners to deliver on their commitments to support African countries to adapt to the unavoidable impact of climate change which includes scaling up efforts in order to:Improve and increase access to climate data,Invest and transfer technologies for adaptation in key sectors.
