Description

We hypothesized that crop diversification depends on socioeconomic factors and farmers’ perception of climate risks, and this farming system helps farmers to meet their food needs and market objectives in the context of challenging climate and COVID-19 pandemic crisis. The objective of this study was to identify the drivers of crop diversification and challenges that farmers face in marshlands. In this study, we used field observation and farmers’ interviews to provide answers to these 3 questions.
