1st Africa Food Security Conference, Nairobi, Kenya, 20-21 August 2013

Africa's vulnerability to climate change impacts have been underscored by the severe droughts experienced recently in the Sahel in 2012 and the Horn of Africa in 2011. All these bring into focus the serious impacts of climate change in the continent and highlighting the urgent need for adaptation as a priority in providing sustainable solutions to reduce the vulnerability of a great majority of Africa's one billion citizens.
