Climate change risks to the soybean value chain in Ethiopia: Findings, implications and adaptation options
Soybean is an important industrial and foreign currency-earning commodity in Ethiopia. However, climate change, variability, and extreme risks will contribute to a decline yield, resulting in lack
of raw material for processing industries and export earnings. The present study is conducted to provide climate information at a scale sufficient for informed decision-making. Results show
increased temperature and rainfall extremes, increase in temperature and rainfall in major soybean growing AEZs in the 2035. The changing rainfall and temperature with more extreme events can negatively affect production, transportation, processing, storage, marketing, and consumption.
