Climate Change and Food Security: Adapting Agriculture to a Warmer World
Publisher: Springer | ISBN: 9048129524 | edition 2009 | PDF | 199 pages | 2.2 MB

Roughly a billion people around the world continue to live in state of chronic hunger and food insecurity. Unfortunately, efforts to improve their livelihoods must now unfold in the context of a rapidly changing climate, in which warming temperatures and changing rainfall regimes could threaten the basic productivity of the agricultural systems on which most of the world’s poor directly depend. But whether climate change represents a minor impediment or an existential threat to development is an area of substantial controversy, with different conclusions wrought from different methodologies and based on different data.

Rapid Urbanisation, Urban Food Deserts and Food Security in Africa

Rapid Urbanisation, Urban Food Deserts and Food Security in Africa By Jonathan Crush, Jane Battersby
English | PDF | 2016 | 199 Pages | ISBN : 3319435663 | 3.32 MB

This book investigates food security and the implications of hyper-urbanisation and rapid growth of urban populations in Africa. By means of a series of case studies involving African cities of various sizes, it argues that, while the concept of food security holds value, it needs to be reconfigured to fit the everyday realities and distinctive trajectory of urbanisation in the region.
