Climate has many impacts on human activities. Various economic activities conducted by a man in different parts of the world are governed by the type of climate experienced in a particular region.
For example, people living in deserts and semi-arid regions do not practice much agriculture because their environment does not favour crop cultivation or animal husbandry.
In these regions, however, very limited agriculture and animals rearing is conducted. The animals kept include camels, goats, sheep, donkeys, and other hardy animals. Only drought-resistant crops such as dates are grown in deserts and arid areas. In tropical and equatorial regions, a lot of agriculture is carried out.
The inhabitants of these regions take part in the cultivation of crops and the keeping of animals. Crops grown include cocoa, banana, horticultural crops, and grains. The animals kept in these climatic zones include cattle, pigs, donkeys, horses, poultry, and other farmyard animals.
