      1. Introduction. Agriculture continues to be the mainstay of the Kenyan economy with an estimated gross domestic product (GDP) share of % making it an important contributor to employment and food security of rural households. Climate change has significantly affected global agriculture in the 21st century and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change .   Agroforestry is one of the most conspicuous land use systems across landscapes and agroecological zones in Africa. With food shortages and increased threats of climate change, interest in agroforestry is gathering for its potential to address various on-farm adaptation needs, and fulfill many roles in AFOLU-related mitigation pathways.

    Agroecology (a-grō-ē-ˈkä-lə-jē) is the study of ecological processes applied to agricultural production systems. Bringing ecological principles to bear can suggest new management approaches in term is often used imprecisely. Agroecologists study a variety of agroecosystems. The field of agroecology is not associated with any one particular method . Get this from a library! How will climate change shift agro-ecological zones and impact African agriculture?.

      The World Bank’s recent report, Turn Down the Heat: Climate Extremes, Regional Impacts, and the Case for Resilience, underscores the urgency of supporting African farmers now so that they can better cope with the potential impacts of a changing climate. Turn Down the Heat finds that an increase of 4 degrees Celsius worldwide would spell increased droughts,. Climate Change and Food Security Impacts on Food Production and Availability. Climate change affects agriculture and food production in complex ways. It affects food production directly through changes in agro-ecological conditions and indirectly by affecting growth and distribution of incomes, and thus demand for agricultural produce.

How Will Climate Change Shift Agro-Ecological Zones and Impact African This paper examines the distribution of climate change impacts across the 16 agro-ecological zones in Africa using data from the Food.

The approach not only identifies the aggregate impacts, but also indicates where the impacts occur across Africa. The central region of Africa is hurt the most, especially in the harsher climate scenario. The Agro-Ecological Zone Model is a promising new method for valuing the long-term impacts of climate change on agriculture.

This paper examines the distribution of climate change impacts across the 16 agro-ecological zones in Africa using data from the Food and Agriculture Organization combined with economic survey data from a Global Environment Facility/World Bank project.

A multinomial logit is estimated to predict the probability of each AEZ in each district. The average percentage of cropland and average crop net revenue are calculated for each AEZ. Then an estimate of the amount of cropland in Africa. How will climate change shift agro-ecological zones and impact African agriculture.

Using three climate scenarios, we project how climate change will cause AEZs to shift, causing changes. The central region of Africa is hurt the most, especially in the harsher climate scenario.
