Determinants of African farmers’ strategies for adapting to climate change: multinomial choice analysisAfrican Association of Agricultural Economists, 2008Climate change is expected to have a considerable impact on poor peoples' livelihoods in Africa and finding ways to help farmers adapt is of critical importance. This study analyses determinants of farm-level climate adaptation measures in Africa using a multinomial choice model fitted to data from a cross-sectional survey of over 8000 farms from 11 African countries.DocumentAfrican Association of Agricultural Economists, 2008This paper examines the impact of climate change on primary crops grown in Africa. An innovative approach is presented that bridges the gap between agro-economic and traditional Ricardian models, labelled by the authors as a ‘Structural Ricardian model’. It first captures the type of crop a farmer will select and then examines the conditional net revenue of that crop.DocumentInternational Trade Centre, 2007Agriculture is affected by climate change but also contributes to it. As a sector, agriculture must therefore both adapt to changes and offers options for mitigation, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and storing carbon. This study explores the mitigation and adaptation potential of organic agriculture.DocumentSouth South North, 2006The project takes place in the community of Pintadas, in the Bahia state of Brazil, which is suffering increasingly severe drought impacts linked to climate change.Document
Guidance for promoting synergy among activities addressing biological diversity, desertification, land degradation and climate changeConvention on Biological Diversity, 2006This report highlights the major biological factors that contribute to ecosystem resilience under the projected impacts of global climate change.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2004This publication considers the linkages between climate change (mitigation and adaptation) and biodiversity, and then relates these linkages to livelihoods, poverty and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
