Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Using a sample survey from Vietnam's M&RRD, this study examines both the factors affecting smallholder households' perceptions of climate change, and the impact of climatic change on smallholders' income and land allocation decisions. Results show a significant and negative impact of perception of climate change on income of smallholder households. Smallholders with perceived climate changes reduce land allocated to paddy crop. Farmers make strategic decision to counter the negative effects of climate change by increasing the amount of rented land for paddy crop production, while at the same time decreasing the amount of owned land allocated to paddy crop.
