Agribusiness as the Future of Agriculture The Sugarcane Industry under Climate Change in the Southeast Mediterranean

by Youssef M. Hamada

Agribusiness as the Future of Agriculture The Sugarcane Industry under Climate Change in the Southeast Mediterranean Synopsis

This book, Agribusiness as the Future of Agriculture: The Sugarcane Industry under Climate Change in the Southeast Mediterranean, reviews the challenges of agribusiness in the Southeast Mediterranean Sea. As climate change creates new risks to human populations and food security, a better analysis is needed to understand this new level of uncertainty and to understand how it will impact agriculture and its relationship with economies, livelihoods, and development. Africa emits low greenhouse gases but is hit the hardest by global warming, posing a serious challenge to increasing agricultural productivity in the Southeast Mediterranean Sea. The author focuses on sugarcane cultivation in Egypt to illustrate the impact of climate change on agribusiness. Sugarcane in Egypt is used as a local food source, for international trade, for the balance of payments, for land and water use, and as a basic product for food and fiber manufacturing. Hence every aspect of the economic structure of Egypt relates to agriculture.
