ABSTRACT
The Nigerian poultry value chain is growing fast and transforming alongside increased climate
variability. However, despite its importance for livelihoods in Nigeria, there is limited information
about how the Nigerian poultry subsector is affected by climate change. We use the conceptual
framework of Reardon and Zilberman (2017), regarding climate shocks and change on
transforming food supply chains to examine how climate change will affect Nigeria’s food
economy. We propose hypotheses of the interactions between climate shocks and change and the
dimensions of the poultry subsector. This exercise reveals that climate change will have
heterogeneous effects on the different nodes of the country’s poultry value chain.
