In the country and study area, the findings and results of this study may provide effective and useful adaptation strategies to drought and also help understand drought’s impacts on agricultural production and farmers’ livelihoods, because of the little existing research on drought in the study area. In addition, maybe this thesis can assist the regional and rural planners and extension officials and other agro and rural related sectors and departments to formulate development plans, policies and extend useful and effective services in order to facilitate farmers to be able to sustain their livelihood against the drought by adapting the most effective adaptation strategies. Drought is one of the major threats among all natural hazards to people’s livelihoods and socio-economic development.
