Ethiopia is one of the drought affected areas which require huge community, government and NGOs participation. The past experience in the country shows the limited capacity of the government for climate change adaptation strategies. Therefore, the current direction is towards enhancing the capacity and creating awareness of the community and users could own, finance and manage their environment in order to minimize impact of climate change by establishing adaptation strategies. The objective of adaptation strategies is to promote farmers perception, improve service delivery, demand management and increase productivity. The main objectives of this study are to examine adaptation strategies, to identify the factors that determine farmers’ perception on climate change adaptation strategies the study area. Apart from the descriptive analysis, binary logit model will be employed to identify the determinants of farmers’ perception on climate change and adaptation strategies. The study will be used both primary and secondary data. The primary data will be obtained through questionnaire and interview; while secondary data will be collected from books, journals articles and different reports. The study site will be selected based the frequent occurrence of drought, topographic variation and other determinants of climate change and adaptation strategies. Accordingly four kebeles will be selected by systematic random sampling for the study.
