The second of three books in IFPRI's climate change in Africa series, East African Agriculture and Climate Change: A Comprehensive Analysis examines the food security threats facing 10 of the countries that make up east and central Africa - Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda - and explores how climate change will increase the efforts needed to achieve sustainable food security throughout the region. East Africa's populations is expected to grow at least through mid-century. The region will also see income growth.

The report looks at the ecological and economic impacts on agriculture, and particularly the food systems, of the climate change projections of four general circulation models (GCMs), for a range of socio-economic future development pathsIt offers an ecological-economic assessment of the impacts of climate change on agriculture across all countries and regions of the world. The study looks at: climate-change induced environmental constraints to crop agricultureshifts in potential agricultural landchanges in crop production patternschanges of cereal production potential.

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) initiatives are more likely to be effective in reducing emissions if they build on, rather than conflict with, the interests of local communities and indigenous groups (referred to henceforth as ‘forest communities’).
