How people privately and collectively adapt to climate risk can affect the costs and benefits of public mitigation policy (e.g., Kyoto); an obvious point often neglected in actual policy making.

We stress that a better understanding of the cross-links between mitigation and adaptation would potentially make it possible to provide more risk reduction with less wealth. Policies that are formulated without considering the cross-links can unintentionally undermine the effectiveness ...

Social Impact of global Environmental Change on Farming Communities on the Ogoli River Bank in Otukpo Area of Benue State, Nigeria

One of the manifestations of the global change in this study area is a marked reduction in the duration and amount of rainfall. This adversely affects the volume of the head waters that ultimately determine the volume of the Ogoli River which is used for irrigation. Consequently, food security and livelihood of the farming communities whose mode of agricultural production is rain-fed is adversely affected. Using Participatory Learning Action (PLA) technique involving three distinct groups of adult male, adult female and youth, the study seek to evaluate the coping mechanisms of these vulnerable group to draught and reduced volume of ...
