Abstract

This presentation to the Asian Development Bank social sciences group focused on sharing lessons learned from research undertaken in the Andean region between 1993 and 2008 in various programs, including the SANREM CRSP LTRA4. Some critical findings relate to the significance of place in coping and adaptation strategies, the need to link new information to existing knowledge systems, and the findings on projections on climate change that underline the uncertain environment in which decisions will be made in rainfed agricultural regions.
