Analyzing the Critical Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture and Food Security

This study explores the threats of climate change on agriculture and food security globally, focusing on Nigeria. Nigeria, as the most populous country in Africa, is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change on its agricultural sector. The research conducts a comprehensive literature review and synthetic analysis to identify the key factors that make Nigeria's food production systems susceptible to climate change. Nigeria's diverse climate, influenced by latitude, topography, winds, ocean currents, and the Sahara Desert, contributes to its vulnerability. Agriculture is crucial for food security, economic development, and livelihoods in Nigeria, making it particularly susceptible to climate change. The study examines the relationship between climate change and agriculture in Nigeria, discussing key challenges, possible consequences, and adaptation strategies. Impacts of climate change on Nigeria's foods security include increased droughts, desertification, pests and diseases, unpredictable weather, decreased fishery productivity, and limited access to resources and technology.
