Chapter 2 (Page no: 11)

Analytical framework and methodologies for analysing farm-level vulnerability.

A comprehensive and well-thought-out framework of analysis is a pre-requisite in analysing pathways in improving resilience to climate change. This chapter discusses the analytical framework that includes macro data analysis, modelling, social analysis, etc., with an inclusive Q2 approach. All information gathered is from primary data collected through questionnaire surveys, focus group discussions and personal interviews. The analytics adopted include: climatic analysis; vulnerability analysis; farmers' perceptional analysis and matching perceptions with reality; social analysis including gender and social networks; and regional assessment of climate change impacts on agriculture using an integrated modelling approach.
