Rainfall variability and drought characteristics in two agro-climatic zones: An assessment of climate change challenges in Africa

Article English OPEN
Ayanlade, Ayansina; Radeny, Maren; Morton, John F.; Muchaba, Tabitha;

This paper aims at examining drought characteristics as an evidence of climate change in two agro-climatic zones of Nigeria and farmers' perceptions of impacts and adaptation strategies. The results show high spatial and temporal rainfall variability for the stations, i... View more
