However, the impact is particularly important in Pakistan where agriculture is one of the largest sectors of economy. Agriculture in Pakistan is already under pressure from increasing demands for food and the parallel problems of depletion of agricultural land and water resources from overuse and contamination. Within the broader framework of climate change adaptation, this study will look at past drought impacts, local perceptions of droughts, anticipated climate change and its related impacts, and viable adaptation options for drought-prone areas of district Layyah.
