Crops like cocoa, coffee, and sugar where global production is concentrated in a few small regions are increasingly being affected by changes in climate and weather. West Africa’s cocoa belt is experiencing greater bouts of dry weather and potentially faces long-term displacement. Similarly, coffee-growing areas of Brazil have seen increased rainfall variability. Recent droughts have driven significant inflation for food producers in the US, and future planning and sourcing decisions must consider the impact presented by climate change.
