Agriculture facing the challenges of climate change: the challenges of sustainable agriculture for Africa

2014 was proclaimed the “International Year of Family Farming” by the United Nations, which wished to celebrate this form of agriculture and its significant contribution to the improvement of living conditions and the attainment of the objectives of agriculture. sustainable development, particularly in rural areas. Family farming can feed 70% of the world’s population and has many benefits in terms of the use of natural resources in a spirit of preserving biodiversity. Although agriculture is the main form of agriculture worldwide, the agricultural sector also includes much less environmentally friendly production methods with many associated impacts. Land use is responsible for about a quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, knowing that agriculture is and will be one of the sectors most affected by the consequences of climate change. As global food needs continue to grow, the challenges of sustainable agriculture are paramount. They are even more so in regions such as sub-Saharan Africa where agriculture accounts for one third of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and where the consequences of climate change will be particularly severe. A transition in our consumption and production patterns is essential and, with this in mind, taking agriculture into account in international climate negotiations is vital. “

ENERGIES 2050 has also made available for the illustration of the magazine a number of original photographs from the collection of the association.
