The Ecosystem Based Adaptation for Food Security Assembly, EBAFOSA, has expressed fears that climate change might be a threat to government’s resolve to diversify the nation’s economy by focusing on agriculture.

Expressing these fears at the World Food Day celebration 2016, tagged Climate is Changing: Food and Agriculture Must Too, National President of EBAFOSA, Mr. James Oyesola, said: “Frequency and intensity of heat, waves, droughts and floods are likely to increase, leading to reduced yield levels and disruptions in food production and distribution channels.

“Furthermore, tempera-ture rise and changes in timing magnitude, and distribution of precipitations are likely to increase moisture and heat stress on crops and livestock, which will make agricultural practices unpredictable.”
