Globally Climate change has been crown a key concern that needs urgent attention. It has affected every living being on this planet and ecosystems, and this has got a considerable impact on the livelihoods ofamong many farmers. There is a thin line between climate change and Agriculture systems in the developing countries, in everycase the majority of the agricultural activities are rain-fed which has directly led to low input hence low productivity leaving a lot of Vulnerability to Agriculture sector. It not only affects agriculture but holistically the effect goes to other sectors likeroads and infrastructure, land and ecosystem, biodiversity, fisheries, energy, health and sanitation, atmosphere air pollution, forestry, wildlife and animals, human population and environment, water supply and watershed resources.Generally the rural poor in the developing countries have felt more pinch than any other and womensmallholder producers are on the front line of dealing with the impacts, but are not first in line forinternational climate finance. National governments are stepping up in spite of limited resources and multiple development priorities. It is great that many positions proposals have been done to ensure the attention of climate change, decisions on adaptation, mitigation have all been arrived at but the climate financing has not been emphasized. It is urgent that financing climate change becomes the number one priority in these circumstances. The adoption of Sustainable Agriculture in the local areas can build resilience capacity among farmers in the area, increase access to water quality and quantity, reduce fluctuating lake levels, reduce over exploitation of natural resources – caused by increased basin population and competition over natural resources, thus leading to declining fish stocks and loss of habitat and biodiversity, wetlands destruction, and forests degradation. This would imply an improvement inbringing new land into agricultural production; increasing the cropping intensity on existing agricultural lands; and increasing yields on existing agricultural lands.
Farmer or Government who should finance climate?
Farmer or Government who should finance climate?Financing the implementation of National Adaptation Programme of Actions (NAPAs) for Developing countries should remain priority. The budget is an important tool used by government to transform society and thus achieve socio-economic development, endorsing the position of United Nations Framework convention on climate change (1994), that all countries should protect the climate system for the benefit of the present and future generations on the basis of equality and in accordance with their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities. Climate finance is central to global efforts which reflect on a divergence position between developed and developing countries. On budget, climate change relevant spending is approximately 0.2 percent of GDP. This contrasts with that recommendation in the draft implementation strategy of the climate change policy, which estimated that around 1.6 percent of GDP needs to be spent on climate change-relevant activities.
