Assessing the costs and benefits of agricultural adaptation measures in Madagascar

Climate change challenges the livelihoods in Madagascar. Adequate response to cope with climate and weather risks are needed. To generate a profound information basis for investment planning and implementation, comprehensive analyses on climate risks and available adaptation options are essential.


In the frame of the AGRICA project, the Potsdam Institute of Climate Impact Research therefore assesses climate and weather risks for the Malagasy agriculture and society. In addition, adaptation options will be selected and evaluated with respect to their costs and benefits.


In this context, our team has been commissioned to conduct cost-benefit-analysis for three selected adaptation options on agri-photovoltaic systems and improved seeds for different crops such as coffee, vanilla, and peanuts. The analysis will be based on data from household surveys conducted by a local research institute.
