    to deal with expected rain as predicted (altho as I recall the IPCC report actually footnoted that it was not willing to state with certainity that more rain would impact East Africa) led to crop shortages when these species were not drought resistant.

    I've heard first hand reports from folks in Uganda about the struggles they had with finding crops to survive the extreme weather conditions .... with some access to assistance but no one actually really having enough resources or information to deal with what occurred.
