´Climate Change Impacts on Subsistence Crops in the Sudano-Sahel of Cameroon, Options for Adaptation´
Climate change presents a typical example of a complex, interdependent environmental challenge facing the world today. The impacts are adding significantly into the development challenges of providing food security and alleviating poverty; particularly in sub Saharan Africa whereby 95 percent of the population depends on rain-fed agriculture for their subsistence.
My research interests are focused on the human dimensions of climate change. Understanding the impacts of climate change and how they relate to vulnerability of the subsistence farmers.
It is based on the premise that the current strategies in used by the subsistent farmers in coping with the climatic variability and changes could be very crucial in the present day quest for adaptation possibilities in the Sudano-Sahel of Cameroon.
