The landscape of climate finance for agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa

Agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has been and will continue to be negatively affected by climate change. The sector is particularly vulnerable to climate-related weather events, such as extreme heat, drought, and flood and these negative impacts are disproportionately felt in the Global South. Already, the region has experienced declining agricultural yields because of climate change, a trend that will only worsen in warming years, causing economic losses, and threatening food security in a region where hundreds of millions already suffer from food insecurity and chronic malnutrition.
