The impact of climate change is noticeable already affecting different sectors: health, social, economic and agriculture. Although climate change impacts countries differently, agriculture is expected to be the most vulnerable sector. The purpose of this thesis is to analyse the impact of extreme temperatures on agricultural productivity in the Eastern African Community. The Eastern African Region is chosen as a case study because of its dependence on agriculture. The study observes five countries with available data from 1991 to 2015. The result of the nonlinear temperature regression models shows a significant decrease on grain yields at extreme temperatures and rainfall measures.
