Large-Scale Primary Sectors increase Climate Risks

The primary sectors of the economy are the most sensitive to climate change, in particular agriculture, crops, livestock, and fisheries. Land-based agricultural productivity in particular is highly dependent on temperature and precipitation or water availability. As a result, countries still highly dependent on agriculture, like Mozambique, where the sector accounts for nearly 30% of its GDP, are also weakly diversified against climate risks.
