Farmers Perception of Climate Change, its Impact, and the Risk of Extreme Weather Events: Evidence from the Central Highlands of Afghanistan


Abstract

This paper provides evidence on the farmers’ perception of climate change, climate change impacts, climate change vulnerability, and the risk of extreme weather events. A novel dataset of 1,502 farmers from three central provinces of Afghanistan and different statistical and econometric methods have been used to study the research questions. The results suggest that farmers have perceived the changes in the climate and have tried to adopt the adaptation options available to them. Due to limited resources, the famers view themselves as vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events.
