This work aimed to make adjusting to climate change affordable for farmers and thereby to increase their livelihood. The project focussed on the rice sector.

Millions of farmers in East and Southeast Asia must decide how to respond to climate change. They risk poverty if they do not respond, but market failures and lack of information may distort their choices if they decide to act. Most funding for climate change research goes towards work on the science and the physical mechanisms. While it is important for that work to continue, less attention has been given to how farmers respond to climate change and to related public policy responses.
