Adaptation to Climate Change for Smallholder Agriculture in Kenya: Community-Based Perspectives from Five Districts
This study is part of a project on Adaptation to Climate Change of Smallholder Agriculture in Kenya which aims to support policymakers’ efforts to promote adaptation to climate change by determining where major hotspots of vulnerability are located, identifying farm- and community-level adaptation strategies, assessing the factors which influence adoption of adaptation practices, as well as farmers’ perceptions of climate risks. This study seeks to address these challenges for Kenya by pursuing the following objectives: 1. To provide an assessment of the impacts of climate change on the agriculture sector in Kenya. 2. To identify and assess ongoing and alternative adaptation strategies. 3. To identify agricultural land management practices. 4. To identify perceptions of climate-related risks. 5. To explore how individual and collective adaptation options and strategies can be supported through public action.
