The Consequences of Inaction: Climate Change and the Challenges for Rural and Agrarian Policy in Africa

"This paper seeks to lay out the nature of the challenges facing not only communities but also policy makers across the continent, as a result of climate change and its associated environmental consequences. The paper is largely descriptive, as it seeks to give an outline of the potential and real threats facing Africa. However, the paper also highlights a number of practical policy implications and ideas to inform responses by policy makers at national state level as well as at the supra-national level on the continent."
