- Under the baseline model run (without climate change), net production of maize in Nigeria (that is, production – national consumption) is expected to increase approximately three-fold by 2064.
- Model output is consistent with meta-modeling studies that demonstrate potential yield losses of up to 50% by mid-century in West Africa under climate change, with the median yield loss at 11%.
