AGU Fall 2013 Session: GC017. Adaptation of Smallholder Farmers to Climate Variability in the Tropics

Session date(s): 09 December 2013 - 13 December 2013

Abstract submissions are invited for the following session in Global Environmental Change at the AGU Fall Meeting, GC017: “Adaptation of Smallholder Farmers to Climate Variability in the Tropics”. Climate change is predicted to negatively impact agricultural productivity across most of the tropics, where smallholder agriculture is the main livelihood for the majority of rural populations. Current models may overestimate the impact of climate on agricultural production, however, given that farmers may adapt cropping practices that are better suited to novel changes in climate. Submissions that examine observations of climate and agricultural management at local, regional, and national scales, are invited in order to identify if there are any commonalities in factors that enhance the ability of farmers to adapt and reduce their vulnerability to changing climates. Deadline: All abstract submissions must be received by 6 August 2013.

Migration and Climate Change Session at the IGU 2013 Kyoto Conference

Session date(s): 04 August 2013 - 09 August 2013

The amount of empirical research focusing on the link between environmental degradation and forced migration in order to forecast the migratory consequences of global warming has risen significantly in recent years. The variety of empirical methods used by researchers is impressive, ranging from qualitative interviews and historical analogies to questionnaire surveys and highly sophisticated statistical methods. This session will attempt at an overview of recent empirical results as well as at a critical assessment of different methodologies.
