Abstract

In this section we consider the significant environmental constraints and opportunities for highland farmers and characterize the technical options that farmers may use to reduce risk. Our aims are to assess the sensitivity of agriculture to climate, and to identify points of vulnerability, so as to begin to identify appropriate policies. The focus of attention is on the results of a survey of indigenous farmers in the Galte-Chauzan area.
