This paper provides an overview of what climate change will mean to subsistence and smallholder farmers in Lesotho, and how the capacity for climate change adaptation in agriculture can be strengthened, focusing on selected areas of crops, livestock and forest-based livelihood systems, to stabilize and improve yields. We draw on experiences and lessons learned from a pilot FAO/Government of Lesotho project, and make recommendations as to how on-the-ground community-based responses could be scaled up to other parts ofthe country, and possibly to other vulnerable countries across southern Africa.

This publication is addressed to UN staff and nationals working on the coordination and execution of emergency activities to make them aware of the importance of dealing with land tenure rights and property issues for both disaster risk reduction including preparedness and mitigation measures, and the efficiency and effectiveness of post-disaster responses. FAO has selected four country case studies that address the issue of land tenure in Mozambique, Bangladesh, Philippines and Ecuador. The analysis helps improve understanding of land tenure in the context of natural disasters.

This publication contains national briefs analysing land tenure  and natural disasters that have occurred in Indonesia, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Philippines, Ecuador and Honduras. The briefs describe land tenure in each country as well as the socioeconomic conditions of the people affected by the natural disaster.

The publication is the result of a joint initiative between FAO, UN-HABITAT, Early Recovery Cluster of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee working on emergency operations, and the Global Land Tools Network.

This report presents the findings of research undertaken in six villages in two drought-prone districts of Andhra Pradesh, India, Mahbubnagar and Anantapur. The study, carried out by an international team led by FAO, used gender, institutional and climate analyses to document the trends in climate variability men and women farmers are facing and their responses to ensure food security in the context of larger socio-economic and political challenges to their livelihoods and well-being.
