Blurb/Shorttext:
Climate change is the most complex and challenging environmental problem facing the world today. Constantly increasing population growth, environmental degradation, low and erratic rainfall, rain-fed subsistence agriculture, declining land productivity and lack of appropriate technologies were found to be the major causes for their vulnerability. The studied households have been suffering from frequent and severe hazards which include drought, flooding, erratic and heavy rainfall affects the environment and their livelihood in the area are linked to persisting vulnerability. As a result, the local communities are adapting to this changing situation by changing cropping patterns, introducing crops that can mature shortly, wood and charcoal selling, wage labor, selling of assets, reforestation, saving and migration.
