T he Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) committed to the mitigation of the effects of climate change by signing the Kyoto Protocol for climate change and other related environmental management protocols. Since 1994, DRC has produced two national climate change communication documents (RDC, Ministère de l’Environnement, Conservation de la Nature, Eaux, et Forêts 2001; RDC, Ministère de l’Environnement, Conservation de la Nature et Tourisme 2009). These documents give the strategic orientation for the application of the climate change convention with a focus on sectors vulnerable to climate change, the extent of greenhouse gas emissions, and the potential for carbon sequestration, adaptation, and mitigation strategies. This research monograph focuses on agriculture. It looks at indicators of economic growth among the sectors most vulnerable to climate change and gives future scenarios for the 10 major crops in the country according to four climate models.
