Farmers Bear Brunt of Climate Impacts

Nearly a third of the seven billion people alive on Earth today directly depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. So when floods, storms, and - above all - droughts occur, it is this swath of the population that suffers most. In addition, a new United Nations study concludes that as the effects of global climate change increase, these losses accrue more and more to the farmers who can least afford them. Featured here is the complete UN study, "Farmers Bear Brunt of Climate Impacts." Readers may want to begin by reading the short overview of the report. More information can also be found in the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations' press release, which goes into more detail. This content here can be especially useful to educators who are teaching about Sub-Saharan Africa and other Third World economies, politics, and agricultural practices.
