Mohammad Amin Karimi | Roya Quraishi [2]

Abstract: Climate change and its toll, warming temperatures and decreasing precipitation levels over the last fifty years have led to innumerable weather anomalies which have caused droughts, floods, unseasonal precipitation, falling ground water tables, desertification, and loss of biodiversity in Afghanistan. Among all population groups rural communities in Afghanistan are particularly vulnerable from the effects of climate change and especially increasing of food insecurity because their livelihoods is strongly depends on agriculture activities. Therefore, rural households are taking some of desperate measures to cope with and adapt to climatic conditions. Because the poorest people particularly subsistence farmers and pastoralists are often already living on marginal land and most suffer from climate change. The impacts of climate change on food security and livelihoods are most worrying and need to be addressed most urgently. Therefore, climate analyses help to know which areas have expected to take place biggest changes in rainfall, temperature and other physical climate parameters. Thus, from such kind of climate information can be found what impacts of these changes will actually observe on poverty and food security and how can be increase people's livelihood from the food and income.
