Agroecosystems and Food Security Vulnerability to the Current Climate Change in South-Kivu (Democratic Republic of Congo)

BYENDA Mutuga Bienfait, BABOYLonganza Louis, BALUKU Bajope Jean Pierre, KANYENGA Lubobo Antoine, MUNYULI Mushambanyi Theodore

The research on the vulnerability of agroecosystems and food security to the current climate change in South-Kivu has been carried out through a questionnaire survey conducted among households exploiting agroecosystems with the overall objective of contributing to the sustainable management of agroecosystems and the understanding of the dynamics of the operation of natural resource holdings by establishing a state of the vulnerability of agroecosystems and food security as well as characterizing them. The result has showed that the food production sector in South-Kivu is highly vulnerable to climate vagaries and no system is established to strengthen endogenous capacities. Early warning systems and assurance of agricultural activities against the adverse effects of climatic variability are urgent in the region.

Keywords: Climate change, vulnerability, agroecosystems, endogenous capacities, conservation agriculture, agricultural insurance
