East African Agriculture and Climate Change: A Comprehensive Analysis - Democratic Republic of the Congo

"The Democratic Republic of the Congo, located in the south central part of Africa, is the continent’s second-largest country. Forests blanket its northern region, while savannah covers the south. The main staple crops are cassava, maize, groundnuts, and rice. Cassava is produced in the southern half of the country, with reported yields averaging around 8 metric tons per hectare. With the agricultural sector still dominant, small changes in climate patterns are likely to have a major impact on agricultural GDP and economic growth."
