Kurzbeschreibung des geförderten Projekts:
Pakistan is one of the South Asian economies which are most vulnerable to the harmful effects of climate change due to its low level of adaptation and high dependence of its pop-ulation on climate sensitive agriculture sector.
The main objective of this study is to investigate the impacts of climate change on agricul-ture in Pakistan. For this impact assessment a top down and bottom up approach will be used. In top down approach, overall impact of climate change on agriculture sector in Paki-stan will be investigated. While in bottom up approach, farm level impacts on climate change and adoption of various adaptation measures will be investigated by establishing a dynamic model of agricultural land use. For this study, real time farm level information will be collected from three districts in Punjab province, Pakistan.
