Ethiopia: Rushing to Relieve Shortage of Maize, Wheat Seeds

Climate change has already been imposing a significant impact on ecosystems, economies and communities. The rising average temperatures do not simply mean balmier winters. Some states will experience more extreme heat while others may cool slightly. Flooding, drought and intense summer heat could result because of the alarming climate change problem.

Almost all effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring. Loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves are becoming visible globally more than ever before in history.

Being part of the globe, Ethiopia also couldn't be free from impacts of the climate change. In more naturally arid areas, droughts and rain inconsistency is being intensified. Effects of such climate change are also being visible in terms of diminishing of crops in some areas, which is also making millions vulnerable food shortage.
