Many households in South Africa are engaged in agricultural production (of crops and livestock) as an important if not the main source of livelihood. Several agencies are involved in assisting farmers in the country to improve their productivity with the goal of raising the standard of living of the people. Presently in South Africa there are many private and government institutions disseminating weather and climate information but an assessment of the impact and benefits of the weather information has not been analyzed on a regular basis.

The analysis of livelihood index will be used to analyze the impact and benefits of weather climate information in agriculture. In this study the use of primary household data in developing the Livelihood Vulnerability Index will help to avoid the pitfalls associated with using secondary data in climate and weather information dissemination analysis. The main objective of this study is to assess and develop adaptation methodology using climate and weather information.
