Climate change and variability is an important component in spearheading adaptation options. Environmental change related to climate change shows altered the rainfall patterns, amplified drought cycles, increased the frequency of severe weather conditions and increased agricultural pests and diseases. More importantly climate change has resulted in declining crop production not only in Zimbabwe but in the whole of the Southern African Development community (SADC). Smallholder farmers have become vulnerable to climate change. Cotton production in Zimbabwe has been on the decline mainly due to climate change and variability. Maize production and other small grains like sorghum have also been on the decline. Climate change has therefore affected staple crops, subsistence production and livestock production in general
