“Climate Change Challenges and Adaptations at Farm-level – Case studies from Asia and Africa” emphasizes the importance of farm-level adaptation in mitigating the risks of climate change in the semi-arid tropics of Asia and Africa. It highlights the key issues that arise in farm-level impacts, adaptation and vulnerability, and discusses the methodological approaches undertaken in Asia and Africa. Systematically describing the perceptions and aspirations of the farmers themselves, the chapters identify constraints and opportunities. Furthermore, the book discusses livelihood strategies for poor farmers across Asia and Africa. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches are used to understand climate change impacts, adaptation options and vulnerability at crop and household level.
