Climate change adaptation: The complexity of the impacts of the science on human livelihoods, and the efforts to adapt are facing limits due to extreme temperature rise. Temperatures in sub- Saharan Africa will rise by up to 60c by the end of this century, the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (AR5 IPCC) study shows, much faster than the global average. The report shows that there will be a sharp decline in rainfall in Southern Africa and that hot days and droughts will be frequent. As a result, food security will be threatened, water stress worsens and adaptive capacity compromised. Zimbabwe is expected to suffer yield declines in excess of 30% by 2050, according to the panel’s study. Farmers therefore need to be trained to have adaptive capacity to climate change.
