Abstract

Today, developing countries face distinctive challenges of development such as to poverty reduction, growth and economic development. The growing concern with climate change presents additional challenges and opportunities to these countries. The paper explores development possibilities/challenges in the age of climate change on the basis of selected review of the literature on mainstreaming climate change to development. The themes under discussion relate to on-going empirical research on vulnerability and adaptions to climate change in Ethiopia, the case of smallholder farmers in Sidama.
