East African Agriculture and Climate Change

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) recently released a new research monograph on the impacts of climate change in East and Central African countries. Declines in yields of 5 to 20% are projected for wheat, soybean, sorghum, and irrigated rice yields by mid-century. Adaptation could significantly offset these losses, and could even contribute to increases in maize yields, despite climate change. The monograph follows similar explorations of climate change impacts in West and Southern Africa, which were published earlier in 2013.
