Pakistan is one of the South Asian economies which are most vulnerable to the harmful effects of climate change due to its low level of adaptation and high dependence of its population on the climate sensitive agriculture sector. The main objective of this study is to investigate the impacts of climate change on agriculture in Pakistan. For this impact assessment, a top-down and bottom-up approach will be used. In the top-down approach, overall impact of climate change on the agriculture sector in Pakistan will be investigated. In the bottom-up approach, farm level impacts on climate change and adoption of various adaptation measures will be investigated by establishing a dynamic model of agricultural land use. For this study, real time farm level information will be collected from three districts in Punjab province, Pakistan.
