Résumé _ This thesis broaden the knowledge of climate change (CC) by showing that its impacts are real and that different community members in the poor societies are socially and economically heterogeneous in their ability to adapt to climate change. Additionally, amid climate change, these communities are experiencing other forces including land tenure reforms, population growth, rapid urbanization and migration, education expansion, diversification, income inequality, technological innovation that induce livelihood dynamics, which further alter the socio-economic setting and thereby influence climate change impacts and local people’s adaptability to the impacts. Both aspects, climate change’s effects and other forces, have received little attention in the research, policy and socio-economic development arena, hence a compelling area of research and the focus of this study, which looks into : the influence of pastoral land privatization on climate change’s impacts and local people’s ability to adapt to the impacts
