Adaptation to climate change among agropastoral systems: case for Zimbabwe - Ungani, 2009

Climate change is an additional constraint to sustainable socio-economic development in Zimbabwe. The increasing frequency and severity of droughts and floods, the periodic shift in onset of the rains, and increasing intensity of mid-season dry spells in the last 50 years have been identified in the Initial National Communications (1996) and other recent studies (for example Tadross et al, 2008) as a major consequence of climate change.
