The problem that the study sought to investigate therefore was lack of empirical data on the perceptions of teachers towards integration of adaptation strategy topics on climate change into secondary school agriculture syllabus on the strength of relevance to teaching methods in Machakoes County. The purpose of the study, therefore, was to investigate the perceptions of teachers towards the integration of adaptation strategy topics on climate change into secondary school agriculture syllabus on the strength of relevancy to teaching methods. The design of the study was descriptive survey research design. The target population was three hundred and fifty (350) agriculture teachers in public secondary schools in Machakos County.

The major recommendation drawn from the study was that, the secondary school agriculture education is a precursor to the agriculture sector, as it translates to equipping people with desirable agro-technical skills, knowledge and attitudes that enhance their livelihoods.
