  • Adaptive Capacity
  • Risk
  • Vulnerability
  • Value of Production
  • Crops
  • Livestock
  • Prioritization


The What’s at Risk Spotlight supports stakeholders in making informed decisions for targeting adaptation and resilience-building initiatives based on the exposure of crop and livestock to climate hazards. Use this Observable Notebook data tool to:

  • Visualize the value of production and rural populations across Sub-saharan Africa down to country subregions
  • Compare the exposure of crops and livestock to climate hazards
  • Identify vulnerable communities using three adaptive capacity metrics - education, female empowerment, and poverty - that indicate the adaptability of a population to the threats of climate change on critical agricultural systems

Interactive Preview — Geographic Impact

Climate challenges will affect crops and livestock differently across Africa, with significant exposure near to the Sahara. Use this map to understand what’s at risk.
