This paper seeks to explore and assess recent literature (2007-present) on climate change adaptation (CCA) among farmers in developing nations, to better understand the range of adaptation approaches prevalent in such nations. Unpacking what adaptation approaches exist in scholarly publications is relevant since scholarly ideas often shape policy directions and negotiations in climate-proof interventions. The study asks:
1) What are the different adaptation approaches authors employing in CCA studies among farmers in the developing nations?
2) What are the research methodologies prevalent in these climate adaptation studies to date?
3) What strengths and weaknesses can be unpacked in the different adaptation approaches.
