Beschreibung

This book proves, through empirical research, that indigenous and traditional agricultural communities have experienced severe climate change impacts, and have developed corresponding livelihood strategies to strengthen their resilience in a variable climate. With a focus on indigenous minority farming communities in the developing region of South-Western Zimbabwe, the study presents both qualitative and quantitative approaches of data analysis to assess sustainability problems amid climate change and climate variability challenges, and proposes potential solutions. In eight chapters, the book expands on the scarce availability of community-based research on climate change and variability in Zimbabwe.


The book is meant for college and university students and stakeholders involved in development work in rural minority farmer communities, especially in climate change prone regions of Africa and other developing countries who have very few options of adaptation and mitigation.


Professor Mark Matsa is a Lecturer in the Department of Geography and Environmental Science at Midlands State University, Zimbabwe. His research interests include Waste Management, Climate Change and Sustainable Development, Land cover and land use changes, Water Resources Management, Food Security, Migration, Gender and the Environment, and Biogeography.
