The map above shows the projected impact of climate change in the 2080s on agricultural productivity across the world if the world does not adopt new measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “Although global production may increase initially (before 2030), global warming is projected to have negative effects in the long run. While production at high latitudes will generally benefit from climate change, in many African countries and Latin America it is projected to be severely compromised,” according to the 2011 report of the European Environment Agency.
