Temperatures Rising: Just Too Hot In The Heart Of Africa | Climate Smart Agriculture | Scoop.it

...“Every crop is affected by the excessive heat and the harvests have been dropping the last two years...We used to harvest between 800 and 1000 kilograms of white rice per hectare in 2010, but it plummeted to 400 or 600 in 2011 and 2012.” Tomatoes are withering under the sun. "We are losing serious money!” says a tomato farmer in front of his field by the river Tshopo. She's already lost ten patches of large tomatoes since March.

Asia's rice bowls get a new ally in climate fight | CGIAR Climate | Climate Smart Agriculture | Scoop.it

In Vietnam, everywhere you look there is food. Before dawn, people haul away huge bags of produce, meat, fish and flowers to later sell on the city streets. On every sidewalk of every town, people are chopping, washing, cooking food. And from morning to night, folks are eating at makeshift pavement restaurants, or grabbing refreshment from a steaming or sizzling mobile stall, perched on the backs of their motorbikes.
