The Widespread Workforce Disruptions spotlight provides critical data to make informed decisions for targeting geographically explicit adaptation for the agricultural workforce. Use this Observable Notebook data tool to:

  • Visualize the size of the African agricultural workforce today and in the future based on projected economic and social development trajectories
  • Identify the heat stress exposure to different geographies under different climate projections against a baseline
  • Assess the proportion of the hours during growing season that will surpass safe working conditions for different populations
