Today, there are more than 7 billion people on the planet, a figure that is expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050. This means that the agricultural sector will have to increase food production by 70% to meet the demand to feed the world’s population. South Africa is extremely vulnerable to climate impacts and so the agricultural productivity in South Africa and sub-Saharan countries is expected to decline from 21% to 9% by 2080.
