Abstract


To cope with threats from climate change, many adaptation strategies have been widely promoted and adopted by rice farmers. This study aims to assess the impact of adaptation strategies on the income of rice farmers. To this end, the En-dogenous Switching Regression (ESR) model has been estimated. Data are from a random sample of 144 rice farmers. The results obtained show that the ESR model is statistically significant at the 1% level. Complementary irrigation, cultural diversification and the intensive rice-growing system are adaptation strategies that have positive impacts on the net incomes of rice-growers. Cultural rotation is the only strategy that has a negative impact on the net income of rice farmers. Thus, these strategies are those on which the actors of the development of the sector must carry out more concrete actions on the view of establishing a real adaptation strategy capable of mitigating the effects of climate change and improving agricultural incomes in a context of reducing hunger, poverty and guaranteeing food security.

Abstract: (french)


Pour faire face aux menaces liées au changement climatique, de nombreuses stratégies d'adaptation ont été largement promues et adoptées par les riziculteurs. Cette étude vise à évaluer l'impact des stratégies d'adaptation sur les revenus des riziculteurs. A cet effet, le modèle Endogenous Switching Regression (ESR) a été estimé. Les données proviennent d’un échantillonnage aléatoire de 144 riziculteurs. Les résultats obtenus montrent que le modèle ESR est statistiquement significatif au seuil de 1%. L’irrigation de complément, la diversification culturale et le système de riziculture intensive sont des stratégies d’adaptation qui ont des impacts positifs sur les revenus nets des riziculteurs. La rotation culturale est la seule stratégie qui a un impact négatif sur les revenus nets des riziculteurs. Ainsi, ces stratégies sont celles sur qui les acteurs du développement de la filière riz doivent mener des actions plus concrètes sur en vue d’asseoir une véritable stratégie d’adaptation capable d’atténuer les effets du changement climatique et améliorer les revenus agricoles dans un contexte de la réduction de la faim, la pauvreté et garantir la sécurité alimentaire.
