Human vulnerability and food insecurity – rainfall and economy in Sub-Saharan Africa

Year: 2008 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
For Sub-Saharan Africa, patterns in economic growth follow precipitation patterns closely. As rainfall has decreased over the last 30 years, so has the financial development. Rainfed agriculture represents a major share of the economy of these countries, as well as for domestic food supply. Improved water resources management and a wider resource base are critical to the stability and security that is required for economic development.
