African Adaptation to Climate Change from the Viewpoint of Green Revolution II

  •  Ryunosuke Kikuchi    


One fundamental question is how climate change adaptation can be fitted into the development and planning process and an important task lies in understanding the full scope of its implications. Climate change will affect African agriculture in particular. Adaptation pathways for climate change suggest greater net benefits at a local level than a global level; it is therefore considered that adaptation is an attractive instrument in Africa. Resilience-based actions play a major role in adaptation of African agriculture, and these actions basically overlap with the concept of the green revolution (dubbed Green Revolution II). The results from a model run based on this concept indicates that climate change influences technology progress and spread, and that technology progress and spread influence the climatic effects on agricultural output.
