In prevailing global environmental change, rural livelihoods is one of a system affected by climate variability. The book presents the pattern of climate variability with respect to its impacts on rural livelihoods, vulnerability, adaptation strategies, coping mechanisms and institutional frameworks to respond for this perturbation in Ziway Dugda district, Central Ethiopian Rift Valley. The findings have presented tangible evidences for the presence of worst climate variability patterns in the region that exacerbate vulnerability by affecting life support system of the environment. Unstructured institutional response systems for climate variability cannot enable the livelihoods to successfully cope with and adapt for the change; climate sensitive livelihood strategy, environmental degradation and underdeveloped infrastructure and non responsive institutions aggravate the vulnerability of rural livelihoods for climate risks. The publication can fill the literature gaps in interactive feedback systems found between rural livelihoods and climate variability. It can benefit further researchers, development planners and people working on rural livelihoods and environmental improvement.
