How can African agriculture adapt to climate change: Are soil and water conservation technologies a buffer against production risk in the face of climate change?

The agricultural sector in developing countries is particularly vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change. Given Ethiopia's dependence on agriculture and natural resources, any adverse agricultural effects will pose serious risks to economic…

brief

How can African agriculture adapt to climate change: Impacts of considering climate variability on investment decisions in Ethiopia

Numerous studies indicate that agricultural production is sensitive to climate variability, and lack of infrastructure in developing countries increases vulnerability to extreme climate events. In Ethiopia, the historical climate record indicates…

brief

How can African agriculture adapt to climate change: The impact of climate change and adaptation on food production in low-income countries: Evidence from the Nile Basin, Ethiopia

Growing consensus in the scientific community indicates that higher temperatures and changing precipitation levels resulting from climate change will depress crop yields in many countries over the coming decades. This is particularly true in…

brief

How can African agriculture adapt to climate change: Measuring Ethiopian farmers' vulnerability to climate change across regional states

Ethiopia’s agricultural sector, which is dominated by smallscale, mixed crop, and livestock farming, is the mainstay of the country’s economy. It constitutes more than half the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP), generates more than 85 percent of…
