bacteria. this is a business africa on the top you welcome before we come to those acute problems facing farmers here is a rather alarming prediction the impact of climate change will make the world on the whole a poorer place in 2058 all together the global economy will be 3 percent smaller than baseline for costs says the study and worst hit africa that's according to a new study by the british business magazine the economist it's called more than 80 countries on their willingness and ability to confront climate change largely as a result of under-development and reliance on our accounts of the african continent will be exposed most seriously to the impact of global warming the pan african economy is forecast to contract by 4.7 percent other developing nations are strongly affected to the asia pacific region could see a drop of 2.6 percent of g.d.p.

6:20 pm
mitigate the effects of climate change in the future and not just rely on the reach of countries and i think this is where africa has got it wrong and where needs to actually look seriously into because if we do not come up with our own strategies in the african continent so many african economies are going to suffer just due to the fact that we are heavily reliant on rainfall and agriculture for instance and in this case it affects the livestock need to fake crop yields which at the end of the day contributes to gross domestic product of african countries. a job brief because there are economic awareness of this problem across the continent yes indeed these economic awareness can have for instance has come up with climate change strategies that are tied to the paris agreement and they're now looking to put in place most stringent measures more long term measures that can t.
