Climate change and floods in Yemen: impacts on food security and options for adaptation

Source(s):  International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

This discussion paper assesses how far climate change is likely to affect Yemen and thus needs to be considered in future development strategies. It focuses on the impacts of climate change on agriculture and household-level food security (taking economywide effects into consideration) and the effects of rising global food prices between 2011 and 2050.

The remainder of the paper is structured as follows: section 2 presents the analytical and empirical framework of the study and describes each of its components; section 3 presents the results of the local, global, and combined climate change impact assessment; section 4 analyzes the effects of floods; and section 5 concludes with recommendations for climate change adaptation action.
