Master's Thesis: Climate adaptation, Technology adoption and Agricultural production at Institut for Fødevare- og Ressourceøkonomi - Københavns Universitet

The agricultural sector in Sub-Saharan Africa is the least productive and highly vulnerable to climate change. Current climate adaptation and technology adoption among farmers in the region remain very limited. Understanding the factors that inhibit or promote climate adaptation and technology adoption in the region remains a priority research and development agenda.

Students interested to empirically investigate the role of extension services, local community institutions, social capital, religious beliefs, or time and risk preferences on climate adaptation and technology adoption under the supervision of Assistant Professor Goytom Abraha Kahsay (IFRO) are welcome.
