Abstract

This study exams impact of climate change on farmer’s income and welfare in various agro-ecological zones in West Sumatra, Indonesia. The first assessment is to determine and generate maps of agro-ecological zone of West Sumatra province. The study also assess on farmer’s income and welfare as impacts of climate change based on the agro-ecological zone in the region using the concept of length growing period (LGP) in GIS and Ricardian model. We find there are twelve agroecology zones (AEZ) West Sumatra based on soil potensial classification and elevation. Climate change has more big impact on farmer’s welfare on soil potensial one zone than soil potential two. The impact of climate change is likely to lead to a decrease in the level of income of household rubber farmers. The impact of climate change are faster and more pronounced in soil potential one compared to soil potential two. Keywords: Climate Change impact, farmer income, Agroecology zone
