Among many other great problems, that the developing countries across the globe suffer is the acute shortage of sufficient food for domestic consumption.The African continent has majority of the countries suffering from this persistent problem, which according to studies has become a threat to human survival. With the problem being pointed out to such factors as low agricultural production, overreliance on foreign food aid as well as unfavorable climatic conditions among others, much needs to be done to alleviate the great sufferings that the natives face due to the problem. While many discussions revolving around this issue would be developed to address various issues as pertains to alleviating hunger in Africa, this paper has special attention on the role of climate change in lowering agricultural production within the African nations. This topic takes centre stage among many countries development agenda because food sufficiency forms the basis of development in all countries. In particular, my interest in the topic emanates from the interest that the UN shows when it focuses on alleviating the levels of hunger by 2015 among other millennium development goals. However, the topic of hunger in Africa adopts dynamic approaches, which would be tedious to cover in such a research study as this. This therefore necessitates a relatively narrow approach from which we can be able to analyze. This paper thus intends to study the effect of climate change on agricultural production in Africa as a
direct cause of low food production and the subsequent menace of hunger.
