Global climate change and food insecurity are the two major challenges in 21st century for humanity, with the former appearing to escalate faster than the later ().In this context, on the one hand, island nations and small islands within larger states in the tropical regions are widely recognised as having high exposure and vulnerability to climate change and other Cited by: 1.

Climate change is projected to bring about a shift of seasons accompanied by a reduction of humid periods, a rise in evapotranspiration, and drying of soils. A majority of humid soils where rice and sugar cane are cultivated will become drier, while projected changes in floods and droughts suggest a reduction in rainfed maize production by The Effects of Climate Change on Agriculture and Food Security in Africa Climate change will play an increasingly important role in Africa, as elsewhere, during the course of the 21st century.
