Présentation
Botswana is known to be a semi-arid region ; it is hot and dry most of the year with erratic, most unpredictable and regional rainfall. Global changes in climatic conditions have worsened the conditions. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) special report published on 10 October 2018, reported that the 1.5 ? global warming above pre- industrial levels lead to Botswana’s average temperature increase above industrial baseline by 2.2 Celsius thus 2.8 Celsius warming experience. Projections has also shown Botswana having 10 more dry days per year and expect roughly 50 more days of heatwaves. Comprehending that the different levels of warming will occur, and that these will impact negatively on susceptible sectors like agriculture, health and water therefore critical for urgent adaptation plans [5]. Furthermore, the replacement of fossil fuels by renewable energies aims mostly at meeting the global affordable energy demand while ensuring balance in sustainability of theenvironment, social and economic aspects. Nonetheless, it needs large areas of land at the same time food security is threatened by the impacts of climate change, growing population, lack of rainfall and infertile soils in Botswana. However, there are agro-climate smart solutions that could solve this problem.
