The government investment to help farmers adapting with the impacts of climate change is bearing fruits, recent studies have reported.

Such investment has positive impact on the income level of the climate change vulnerable farmers, concluded the study jointly conducted by the Ministry of Agricultural Development, National Disaster Risk Reduction Center(NDRC), Freedom Forum and UNDP.

Two study reports – “Collaborative Research on Impact of Climate Change Finance on the Climate vulnerable poor population” and “Public Expenditure Tracking Survey of Cooperative Farming, Small Irrigation and Transportation of Seeds and fertilizers” – have shown that climate related programmes launched in agricultural sector increased income of farmers and helped them improve soil quality and manage water sources.
