Hydrometeorological events such as floods, droughts or cyclones, and other increasingly recurrent extreme weather phenomena have consequences on the health, food security, nutrition, environment and economic development of the most vulnerable populations.
On average, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) estimated that, in 2015, 98.6 million people were victims of disasters, with droughts and floods being the two hazards that affected the greatest number of people.
Climate change affects the seasonal calendar, accentuates the occurrence of extreme weather
events, modifies soil structure, imapcts on water sources, and affects agricultural crop cycle, yield
crop quality, and the pace and length of hunger seasons in many subsaharian african countries.
The impacts of climate change therefore amplify already existing threats to food security and livelihoods. Already vulnerable populations and households are the first affected by climate change, especially in rural areas where household food security depends primarily on their own agricultural production.
