Abstract

    Food security is one of the concerned issues of climate change. It is fundamental for a country to maintain a certain amount of agriculture land and promote the efficiency of agriculture land utilization. There have been many innovative strategies for the adaptation of climate change in the developed countries. To achieve the goal of climate change adaptation for agriculture land, vulnerability assessment of farmland is important. Based on the framework of IPCC, the research applies the structure of exposure, sensitivity, and adaptation to build the indicators and conducts the evaluation in terms of the designated area in Yunlin, Chiayi, and Tainan County. Through the application, the key factors of the vulnerability of farmland system are identified. It can be applied as a reference of guideline for the government to formulate the feasible local adaptation actions in the future.

Keywords: Climate change, Agriculture land, Vulnerability assessment, Adaptation strategy.
