Climate change threatens rice farmers

In Southeast Asia, the occurrence of floods and droughts is increasing due to climate change, threatening the livelihoods of the around 180 million people living in the Mekong region. Appropriate risk mitigation techniques are missing so far, and especially small-scale farmers who mostly engage in rice farming lack the knowledge and meteorological information required for climate change adaptation and decision making.
