Climate Report 2021 

The fifth Climate Report presents contributions from the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation of global climate and energy programs

The focus of the Climate Report 2021 is on the potential effects of extreme weather events and the consequences of climate change on the agricultural sector. How are the changes affecting migratory movements? And how about security policy? We look into different regions of the world and show that the consequences of climate change are highly complex and that we need pragmatic and long-term solutions. Our Climate Report 2021 offers analyses and possible solutions.

Climate change and the agricultural sector are closely linked. On the one hand, the agricultural sector is an important industry worldwide, employing an estimated 866 million people. Productive agriculture is required to feed a growing world population. On the other hand, the agricultural sector has come under fire because it emits a lot of greenhouse gases and is therefore jointly responsible for climate change. At the same time, climate change has negative effects on the agricultural sector. However, the situation is highly complex and it requires a differentiated view of the world regions. The Climate Report 2021 does justice to this complexity.

We look to Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific as well as the Middle East and North Africa and let renowned experts have their say. The Climate Report 2021 offers a differentiated view of the difficult situation and shows possible solutions that secure the need for food and are sustainable at the same time.

Latin America

Climate change has reached agriculture in Latin America. Not only extreme weather events such as droughts and heat waves, but also heavy rain and floods have a direct impact on crop production and livestock farming. In addition, new conflicts arise in the region due to migration flows and related security issues. We conducted an interview with Emy Padilla, who explains the situation to us using the example of the Central American dry corridor.

Sub-Saharan Africa

Climate change and agriculture also influence each other in sub-Saharan Africa. To make matters worse, the region has only minimal financial and technical resources for adapting to climate change. We met with Dr Met George Wamukoya for an interview.

Asia and Pacific

Agriculture in Asia and the Pacific is already facing the consequences of climate change. Foreseeable yield losses threaten food security in the region. The consequences appear very differently on site. We spoke to Dr Manish Anand spoken.

Middle East and North Africa

The geographical area that includes the Mediterranean countries is affected by long-term climate changes. In addition to rising sea levels, regional climate and temperature fluctuations are to be expected, as well as a lack of precipitation or severe storms. We speak to Dr Vinay Nangia on the challenges in the region.
