Vulnerabilidade rural, Alterações Climáticas e Adaptação em Angola

Publication Year:

Eleven years after the war ended, and in a country whose economic growth rate is consistently among the three highest in the world (1), Angolans in rural areas should no longer be suffering the effects of chronic food insecurity and vulnerability to external shocks. In 2007, the per capita income Angola has approached the value of middle-income countries (10) and the Human Development Index of the United Nations (UN) 2009 ranked Angola as a country with "medium human development" placing it ahead of Ghana, Kenya and Bangladesh (2). Although this classification is due largely to the fact that oil revenues increase gross national income (GNI), Angola has other factors in its favor, including a vast area of arable land to explore, low population density and a generally favorable climate for agriculture, compared with many of its neighbors.
