ABSTRACT

This paper aims to review the impact of climate change on Nigeria's agribusiness value chain. In this study, the researcher reviewed recent and popular academic journals in the area of climate change and agricultural value chains. This review process aims to strengthen the existing literature in this field of study. After carefully reviewing the literature, the paper revealed that the change in the global climate has a significant impact on the agribusiness value chain. The Nigerian agricultural value chain consists of the pre-upstream, up-stream, mid-stream, and down-stream. All the streams are directly or indirectly affected by climate change. The climate change impact varies across the value chain; it affects each stream with a different magnitude. The review also revealed that climate change has a significant effect on the food production value chain with a higher impact on pre-upstream and upstream when compared to mid and downstream. Suggestions presented in this paper include focusing on greenhouse gas reduction, practicing precision farming, using a reusable source of energy, taking advantage of IoT, and climate-smart agricultural technologies. This review will help the value chain stakeholders to understand how to achieve sustainability on the value chain and understand how to mitigate or adapt to climate change impacts.
