Climate change is affecting farming systems worldwide. It is expected that the impacts will be disproportionately felt by small scale farmers who are already amongst the most poor and vulnerable members of the society. NACA’s efforts to map farmers’ perceptions and attitude towards climate change impacts and adaptive capacities to address these impacts in four Asian countries including the shrimp culture practices in India (CIBA-NACSA/MPEDA-NACA project) through the ‘Aquaclimate’ project is highly admirable. I hope the project will provide farmers with strategies to maintain their resilience in the face of climate change.
