A farmer in Ethiopia. A shift in the local climate is bringing changes to how crops grew 20 years ago. Research showed about 90 percent of farmers in the Choke area perceived an increase in temperatures over the past 20 to 30 years, in line with scientifically observed data. In some areas, yields have declined, tipping them from having a food surplus to a food deficit within 20 years.
