dc.description.abstractClimate change poses a major threat to West Africa in general and to the countries of the Community of West African States (ECOWAS) countries in particular. Agriculture, a key economic sector that supports nearly 60 per cent of those countries’ populations, is especially vulnerable to such change. the United Nations University for Natural Resources in Africa, in collaboration with the African Climate Policy Centre at the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), is implementing a two-year research project entitled “Climate change, agricultural trade and food security in ECOWAS”. The project is aimed at assessing whether agricultural production systems and trade policies in ECOWAS can be adjusted in order to alleviate the impact of climate change on food security and identifying ways to promote sustainable development in the region. This report provides an overview of the methodology, tools and data generated in that regard. For illustrative purposes, it also provides a consideration of historical simulations, an assessment of the projected climate change scenarios for the late twenty-first century and a discussion of potential challenges that could impede agricultural development and undermine food security in ECOWAS countries.en
