Abstract The enormous diversity of responses to the drought conditions in the last thirty years makes it difficult to formulate general conclusions about people’s responses to climate change. It is important to study the pathways of decision-making units at the micro-level and even at individual level and to emphasize the socio-economic differences in changing patterns of responses and the gradual changes in people’s ‘habitus’. To understand the options available to people it is wise to focus on the technological changes in land use, the changes in the control over resources, migration and mobility, the trends of livelihood diversification and institutional change.
