The economy of Africa consists of the trade, industry, agriculture, and human resources of the of , approximately billion people were living in 54 countries in Africa. Africa is a resource-rich continent. Recent growth has been due to growth in sales in commodities, services, and manufacturing. West Africa, East Africa, Central Africa and Southern Africa in GDP: $ trillion (Nominal; ), $ . production levels are very low for all livestock species and demand far exceeds supply.

Lecture Integrating environment concerns into agricultural policy (download powerpoint slides here)What we want to learn about this topic. This section of the course examines the relationship between agricultural production and the environment and the way in which this impact is influenced and should be influenced by agricultural policies. Species and breed of livestock that can be kept e.g. shift in livestock species from cattle to small ruminants in Sahelian countries as a result of droughts Specific impacts of climate change on livestock production – what we know.
Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global warming affects agriculture in a number of ways, including through changes in average temperatures, rainfall, and climate extremes (e.g., heat waves); changes in pests and diseases; changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide and ground-level ozone concentrations; . The contribution of livestock to agricultural GDP Based on new livestock population and output estimates, Table 2 summarizes the gross value of the goods derived from livestock in Kenya in The re-estimated value of livestock production is billion Kenyan shillings (Ksh) (Table 2).

Climate change and its effects on existence on earth are becoming more and more relevant as physical evidence of change in our climate is beginning to mount. Livestock production and our dependence on it for survival is a reality.
It is also a reality that this global source of food and income will be prone to the effects of climate change. What causes supply levels from African livestock sectors to change.

a high share in livestock output, indicating relatively high availability, per head of the human population, of livestock output from domestic sources. In contrast West and central Africa had a relatively low availability from domestic sources.
Table 2. Regional distribution of livestock output and human population in sub-Saharan Africa, Livestock are important assets in Africa, helping improve the nutritional status of their owners, and contributing to economic growth.
Can these roles continue and can livestock production systems be further developed so that they will be sustainable.
A key feature of livestock in Africa is that they fulfill multiple roles, ranging from draught power, to providing Cited by: 5. Challenges facing the livestock sector towards and the changes and management considerations required to maintain sustainability are discussed.
Major challenges are associated with climate change and the environmental impact of the sector. Southern Africa is predicted to become drier and the average temperature may rise by ºC to 2 by: The top 10 causes of business insurance loss account for over 90 per cent of such claims by value.
“Whereas in the past a large fire or explosion may have only affected one or two companies, today losses increasingly impact a number of companies and can even threaten whole sectors globally,” said Chris Fischer, CEO of Allianz Global. Abstract.

High fees levied by market authorities serve to encourage buying and selling of livestock outside formal markets. Climate change is the disruption in the long-term seasonal weather patterns. 1 It's caused by global warming.

Over the last decade, there has been a progressive and substantial change in approach to the challenges associated with development; these can probably be best summarized by the now obligatory insertion of ‘pro-poor’ and ‘sustainable’ before the long-standing goal of ‘economic Cited by: Rapid increases in inflation could reduce economic growth and worsen the poverty levels of the citizens of Kenya.
In Kenya economic development is dependent on agricultural : Haradhan Kumar Mohajan. Many projections of the impact of climate change on the crop, livestock and fishery production sectors of African agriculture are reported in the literature.
However, they may be arguably too general to understand the magnitude of impact and to inform adaptation strategies and policy development efforts that are tailored to promoting climate-smart agriculture in the Cited by: Livestock Sector in Africa • Demand for livestock products in Africa (SSA) will increase several folds by • Major business opportunities for livestock keepers • Smallholders, with their mixed crop and livestock farming systems, will continue to be the main producers of ruminant (cattle, goat and sheep) products • until Confidence in the projected impacts of climate change on agricultural systems has increased substantially since the first Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports.
In Africa, much work has gone into downscaling global climate models to understand regional impacts, but there remains a dearth of local level understanding of impacts and communities’ Cited by: 9.

Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the world's atmosphere and oceans since the preindustrial age. Sincethe earth’s average temperature has risen about 1 degree Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit.
