Between Climate Change and Modernization Boom: The Uncertain Future of East Africa´s Savannas

East Africa is experiencing a period of swift changes. This development is characterized by a rapidly growing population, the modernization of agricultural production, innovations in energy technologies as well as the increase in nature conservation areas.

The consequences of climate change and further waves of globalization might exacerbate these problems in this highly dynamic region.
