Conference on Climate Change and Food Security in West Africa
November 18 @ 8:00 am - November 19 @ 5:00 pm
18-19 November, 2019 at WASCAL Climate Change Economics GSP, Université Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar (UCAD), Dakar, Senegal.
Climate change affects food security in myriad and complex ways. It affects food availability through its impacts on crop yields and livestock productivity. For many net food-buying households in the region, losses in crop yields and livestock productivity can often translate into reduced access to food due to higher food prices.
This conference is intended to serve as a platform for exchanging and discussing latest research findings on the relationship between climate change and food security in Western Africa, particularly on innovative and cutting-edge solutions and insights related to the Conference themes. The conference seeks to bring together early career and experienced researchers from economics and other social sciences from the Western Africa region to promote mutual exchanges and collaborations on this crucial topic.
