Agriculture and Development Notes, 2014, vol. 5, No 2, 2 pages

Abstract: Though people have already adopted measures to limit the negative effects of climate change, more extensive adaptation is required to reduce vulnerability to climate change. Hence, it is important to assess climate impact and vulnerability as well as the adaptation options employed to increase resilience. Climate impact and vulnerability assessment invloves the assessment of key changes in climate, climate change impact on different sectors, and vulnerability of livelihoods for strategic planning. Examples of outputs from the conduct of climate impact vulnerability assessment in agriculture include rainfall pattern, amount and area, frequency, intensity and duration of droughts and floods, soil erosion, and soil nutrient cycle
