Climate change in different agro-ecological zones means that farmers have to deal with a new range of uncertainties (i.e. rainfall and seasonal distribution, change of growing seasons, unavailability of water, droughts, floods, etc.) in addition to their everyday burden.
Agricultural crop distribution and production is largely dependent on the geographical distribution of thermal and moisture regimes. The impacts of climate change vary depending on the context therefore climate resilient agricultural practices and technologies are context-specific and knowledge-intensive.
