Climate Variability and Livelihood Diversification in Northern Ethiopia : A Case Study of Lasta and Beyeda Districts

Weldegebriel, Zerihun Berhane and Prowse, Martin LU (2016) In Geography Directions
Abstract
Ethiopia is currently facing the worst drought in its modern history, resurrecting the world’s collective memory of the tragedy of the 1980s. But such severe meteorological conditions may not be so rare in the future: the observed and projected impacts of changing climatic conditions in Ethiopia point towards a considerable worsening of food security status for many smallholder households. In our paper, recently published in The Geographical Journal, we provide empirical evidence of the perceptions of smallholder farmers towards climate variability and the forms of adaptation strategies employed in two districts in Northern Ethiopia.
