We identified and analysed droughts in the La Plata Basin (divided into seven sub-basins) for the current period (1961–2005) and estimated their expected evolution under future climate projections for the periods 2011–2040, 2041–2070, and 2071–2099. Future climate projections were analysed from results of the Eta Regional Climate Model (grid resolution of approximately 10 km) forced by the global climate model HadGEM2-ES over the La Plata basin, and considering a RCP4.5 emission scenario. Within each sub-basin, we particularly focused our drought analyses on croplands and grasslands, due to their economic relevance. The three-month Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI3) was used for drought identification and characterization. Droughts were evaluated in terms of time (percentage of time from the total length of each climate scenario), space (percentage of total area), and severity (SPEI3 values) of cells characterized by cropland and grassland for each sub-basin and climate scenario. Drought-severity–area–frequency curves were developed to quantitatively relate the frequency distribution of drought occurrence to drought severity and area. For the period 2011–2040, droughts dominate the northern sub-basins, whereas alternating wet and short dry periods dominate the southern sub-basins. Wet climate spread from south to north within the La Plata Basin as more distant future scenarios were analysed, due to both a greater number of wet periods and fewer droughts. The area of each sub-basin affected by drought in all climate scenarios was highly varied temporally and spatially. The likelihood of the occurrence of droughts differed significantly between the studied cover types in the Lower Paraguay sub-basin, being higher for cropland than for grassland. Mainly in the Upper Paraguay and in the Upper Paraná basins the climate projections for all scenarios showed an increase of moderate and severe droughts over large regions dedicated to crops and grasses. On the other hand, for the near future, the Lower Uruguay and the River Plata basins showed a decrease of drought severity compared to the current period. Projections suggest an increase in competition among uses in these regions and the need for a potential relocation of certain crops from the northern regions towards cooler regions located in the centre and south. Further research should consider other climate projections and perform high spatial resolution studies in localized areas.

Farmers are experiencing the need to adapt to climate change, and are developing different strategies. This article contributes to the understanding of farmers’ adaptation choices, their determinants and their implications, in relation to the household income. In 2014, Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) and 220 household surveys were carried out with farmers in coffee and food crop zones in Central Kenya. The Heckman model was used to evaluate the determinants of adaptation choices and their marginal effect. Farmers from the coffee zone or from the food crop zone perceive and adapt differently to climate change. Farmers who are aware of changes in climate are more willing to explore adaptation strategies. A positive relationship is found between adaptation to climate change and household income. The highest payoff/return is achieved if multiple adaptation choices are used rather than a single strategy. The choices of strategies are also determined by household characteristics, resource endowment, institutional variables, and climate information. The strong correlation between socio-institutional variables and adaptation capacity suggests the need for the establishment and strengthening of local institutions, such as micro-finance and extension. Résumé Les agriculteurs doivent s’adapter au changement climatique et développent pour cela différentes stratégies. Cet article contribue à la compréhension des choix d’adaptation des agriculteurs, de leurs déterminants et implications, en lien avec le revenu des ménages. Des groupes de discussion et des enquêtes ont été menés en 2014 auprès de 220 producteurs de zones caféières et de zones de cultures vivrières dans le centre du Kenya. Le modèle d’Heckman a été utilisé pour évaluer les déterminants des choix d’adaptation et leurs effets marginaux. Les producteurs de la zone caféière et de la zone de cultures vivrières perçoivent et s’adaptent différemment au changement climatique. Les agriculteurs qui sont conscients du changement climatique sont plus disposés à explorer différentes stratégies d’adaptation. Une corrélation positive est identifiée entre l’adaptation au changement climatique et l’augmentation du revenu des ménages. Des choix d’adaptation multiples sont plus payants que le choix d’une seule stratégie. Les stratégies d’adaptation sont aussi déterminées par les caractéristiques des ménages, les dotations en ressources, les variables institutionnelles et l’information relative au climat. La forte corrélation entre les variables socio-institutionnelles et les capacités d’adaptation suggère le besoin de renforcer les institutions locales de microfinance et de conseil technique.
