Abstract
The climate change phenomenon has direct and indirect influences and effects on livelihoods both at grassroots and global levels. The unsatisfactory food security status, coupled with the persistent production chain challenges particularly in the Least Developed Countries(LDCs) put in question the attainment of the Millennium Development Goal 1 (MDG1). In the cross-country survey undertaken in Uganda, both questionnaires and interviews were employed to explore the Indigenous Knowledge(IK)status as regards the climate change influences on farming and livelihoods at the grassroots. Respondents in all regions acknowledged, though to varying extents and intensities, the climate change phenomenon as reflected by its influence on farming activities and production trends.
