Modeling the response of tropical highland herbaceous grassland species to climate change: The case of the Arsi Mountains of Ethiopia
Global warming is forcing plant and animal species to respond either through pole-ward or upslope migration to adjust to temperature increases, and grassland communities are not an exception to this phenomenon. In this ...
Assessing farmer use of climate change adaptation practices and impacts on food security and poverty in Pakistan
Climate change is set to be particularly disruptive in poor agricultural communities. We assess the factors influencing farmers’ choice of climate change adaptation practices and associated impacts on household food security ...
Collaborative research on Conservation Agriculture in Bajío, Mexico: continuities and discontinuities of partnerships
(Taylor & Francis, 2019)
Agricultural technologies are debated and contested. Studying the socio-political life of agricultural research can help us to understand why some particular technologies or pathways are favoured (and others not) and ...
Farmers' climate change adaptation options and their determinants in Tigray Region, Northern Ethiopia
(Academic Journals, 2015)
Exploring micro-level evidences is critical to fine tune effective adaptation options to cope with the adverse impact of climate change. In this regard, detailed studies on climate change adaptation options are not available ...
Risks associated with dry soil planting time in Ethiopia
(International Network for Natural Sciences, 2015)
Dry soil planting is practiced in response to variable rainfall onset in Ethiopia to maximize use of the full season. Rainfall data of >30 years for seven locations were used to evaluate dry soil planting opportunities on ...
Index insurance and climate risk management: addressing social equity
Fair distribution of benefits from index insurance matters. Lack of attention to social equity can reinforce inequalities and undermine the potential index insurance holds as a tool for climate risk management that is also ...
Climate variability and change in Bihar, India: challenges and opportunities for sustainable crop production
