The impact of climate change and environmental degradation on sustainable access to food, water and energy in the region of eastern and southern Africa

Source(s):  Plan International
Practical Action

This study shows that climate change and environmental degradation are causing pronounced negative effects on food, water and energy, with two distinctive features – gender and geographic inequality, where men, women and children are disproportionately affected and where some areas are more vulnerable and hit much harder than others. The study also reveals that the effects of climate change have a tendency of being accompanied by other human-induced impacts such as resource over-exploitation, which are already posing a major environmental challenge in Africa. These factors represent a major challenge in building climate change adaptation strategies.
