    Climate change adaptation (CCA) is a response to global warming (also known as "climate change" or "anthropogenic climate change"). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) defines adaptation as: 'the process of adjustment to actual or expected climate and its effects. In human systems, adaptation seeks to moderate or avoid harm or exploit beneficial opportunities. drought impacts during the Terminal Classic (9, 11, 14). Further, the supposition that hydrological impacts were a primary cause for societal change is often challenged by archaeologists, who stress spatial variability in societal disruption across the region and the complexity of human responses to environmental change (2, 3, 12).

The drought is set to affect South Africa’s entire economy. The BFAP estimates that there will be a 3,76% decrease in the agricultural gross domestic product (GDP) from to characterize agricultural drought in various settings depending on available data and local capabilities would be an important achievement.

Ultimately, all countries should continue to work toward implementing a composite approach in which multiple indices and indicators are used to characterize agricultural drought, its severity, and impacts.

Droughts are an annual event in Tanzania, and somewhere every year there will be a drought there. Tanzania, like much of Africa, is facing food shortages due to climate change-fueled drought. GM crops could help the country survive.

According to Tanzania NAPA (), agriculture has been identified to be the second most vulnerable sector to the impacts of climate change. A study on vulnerability and adaptation to climate change impacts on other sectors in Tanzania clearly indicated that forestry, water, coastal resources, livestock and human health are alsoFile Size: 1MB.

In the past, India has experienced 24 large scale. climate change, specifically drought (Thurow and Taylor, ). Probably, the worst impact of climate variability in Tanzania is its interference with food security (URT, ).

Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global warming affects agriculture in a number of ways, including through changes in average temperatures, rainfall, and climate extremes (e.g., heat waves); changes in pests and diseases; changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide and ground-level ozone concentrations; changes in the nutritional.

Drought and Its Effects on Farming and Agriculture by Genevieve Devine A severe drought, such as the one that has affected the Midwest, Southwest, Southeast and the Southern and Central Plains regions of the United States last year, can have lasting effects on both the local and national agricultural and farming industry.
