    Abstract Climate change is set to have a significant impact on climate-sensitive sectors of national economies, such as agriculture. This report, published by the World Agroforestry Centre, discusses the challenges that climate change brings to smallholder farmers in Southeast Asia, and outlines adaptive measures that can be taken. It begins with a brief general discussion of climate change and moves on to describe the likely impacts for farmers. The following section highlights adaptive strategies available to small-scale farmers in the region. These options include: the diversification income and livelihood activities, altering current management practices, utilizing available carbon finance and altering crop varieties. The report concludes by offering advice to smallholder farmers who want to develop their own climate change adaptation strategy.
