This landmark book encompasses a comprehensive quantitative analysis and assessment of the extent of potential economic impacts of future climate change, and value of adaptation measures in Africa for different zones, regions, countries and farm types.

Researchers developed and applied multipliable analytical methods and procedures to assess quantitatively how climate affects current agricultural systems in Africa, predict how these systems may be affected in the future by climate change under various global warming scenarios, and suggest what role adaptation could play. The study is the first to combine both country level and cross-country, spatially referenced household survey and climatic data for conducting this type of analysis.

This book provides vital knowledge about the impacts of climate change on Africa and serves as a guide to policy intervention strategies and investment in adaptation measures. It also makes a major contribution to knowledge about methods and approaches to analysing climate change impacts and developing adaptation strategies, especially in the highly vulnerable farming communities in the developing world.
