dc.description Chapter published in Climate risk and vulnerability: a handbook for Southern Africa en_US
dc.description.abstract The agricultural sector in southern Africa needs to produce enough food to feed its current population of 277 million and future predicted population of over 300 million by 2025 (United Nations ESA, 2015). All of this must happen within the many restrictions imposed on the sector by an unpredictable climate, finite natural resources and sometimes limited access to modern production technology (Kotze & Rose, 2015). Global projections suggest that the number of people at risk of hunger will increase by 10 to 20 percent by 2050 as a result of climate change, with 65 percent of this population in sub-Saharan Africa. en_US
