Climate change and rural development
Climate change has major impacts on rural areas. It affects all components of humans’ livelihood and food security, mainly through its impact on the ecosystems. People experience these impacts very directly as most ecosystems have a rural dimension. Activities in rural areas also contribute to climate change. What are the implications of climate change for rural areas and the options for rural people in developing countries to engage in mitigation of climate change as well as in adaptation to its foreseeable effects as integral components of rural ecosystem services?
