New Factsheets: Climate Impacts on Agricultural Crops

In order to support focused adaptation efforts in agriculture, GIZ commissioned a detailed study about how different crops are affected by climate change. Impacts do not only depend on the type of crop and its location, but also vary during a plant’s stages of growth. In addition, different aspects of climate change can have different adverse, but also beneficial effects. Detailed knowledge can help make the right decisions.

Fact sheets are now available for download for each of the studied crops – rice, maize, coffee, and sorghum and millet. They will give you an overview about how complex the effects of climate change can be. The full study, which is forthcoming, will elaborate on the effects and their consequences in more detail.
