Review on Effect of Climate Change and Urbanization on Agriculture

Zakir Ababor


Climate is the primary important factor for agricultural production. The work topics concentrate possible physical effects of climatic change on agriculture, such as changes in crop and livestock yields as well as the economic consequences of these potential yield changes. In addition to this understanding of long-term changes in precipitation and temperature patterns is important in the detection and characterization of climate change. The role that climatic change has played in the pattern of urbanization in sub-Saharan African countries compared to the rest of the developing world and climatic changes represented by rainfall, has acted to change urbanization in sub-Saharan Africa. The cultivated land loss due to urbanization not only threatens food security in, but has also led to ecological system degradation to which close attention should be paid. In other hand climate change and urbanization have caused temporal changes in precipitation and temperature. Finally this paper reviews the effects of climate change and urbanization on agriculture. The main interests, concerning the role of human adaptations in responding to climate change, the impacts of climate change and urbanization, possible regional impacts to agricultural systems and potential changes in patterns of food production.
