Can Uganda's agriculture thrive beyond 1.5-degree global warming?

18 Apr 2024  |  www.newvision.co.ug
The Paris Agreement aims to limit global warming to below 2°C, with efforts to keep it under 1.5°C. Uganda, an agricultural nation, pledged a 22% carbon cut by 2030. The country's agriculture is vulnerable to climate change, with 80% smallholder farmers and 70% subsistence farmers lacking modern methods. Rising temperatures threaten to surpass the 1.5°C limit, with visible effects like crop diseases, animal deaths, and water shortages. Uganda's economy, heavily reliant on agriculture, faces challenges with coffee production and exports declining due to diseases and temperature changes. The country's development goals focus on transforming from peasant to commercial farming, but climate change poses a significant threat. Global efforts to curb emissions are crucial for Uganda's agricultural sector's survival.

How deep is Trump’s Climate Skepticism?

23 Oct 2017  |  modernghana.com
US President Donald Trump appointed Kathleen Hartnett-White, a climate change skeptic, to head the White House office coordinating environmental and energy policies. Hartnett-White, who has questioned the scientific consensus on human-fueled climate change, is a senior fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, with ties to oil industry executives. Her nomination is seen as a win for industry interests and a threat to environmental protection, especially as the Trump administration has left many key scientific posts vacant.

Climate Change, the main driver of Migration in Africa

21 Oct 2017  |  Modern Ghana
Climate change is increasingly driving migration across various regions in Africa, surpassing economic, political, or social reasons. The migration, often induced by environmental factors, is highlighted in the context of the UN World Food Day, emphasizing the need to invest in food security and rural development to change the future of migration. The 2017 World Hunger report indicates a rise in the Ugandan population at risk of hunger and food insecurity, attributing it to extreme climatic conditions affecting food production.

Marrakech COP22: ‘tis Time For Africa’s Voice

31 Oct 2016  |  Modern Ghana
The COP22 conference in Marrakech, Morocco, is an opportunity for Africa to lead in voicing concerns about climate change, particularly the lack of attention to agriculture in the Paris Agreement. Despite low CO2 emissions, Africa faces severe climate impacts, with calls for $50 billion per year for adaptation and a 1.5-degree warming limit. The European Union and others have pledged support for the African Renewable Energy Initiative, but more robust positions on compensation and emissions cuts are needed.

Long Term Goals, Lasting Weapon For Climate Change!

11 Sep 2015  |  modernghana.com
Countries are making significant commitments to combat climate change, aiming for ambitious long-term goals to inspire action and improve environmental policies. The urgency is underscored by 2015 being the hottest year on record and the devastating effects of climate change on African countries, such as the severe drought in 2011. Poor goal setting has been linked to policy failures, but the hope is that by 2050, current climate actions will lead to a reduction in global temperatures by keeping them to an average of 1.5 degrees Celsius. The Democratic Republic of Congo and Ghana are highlighted for their efforts towards green economies and solving energy crises, respectively. The article emphasizes the importance of consistent policy agendas and long-term energy targets, potentially supported by government and development partner subsidies.
