Climate change and variability is a global concern as it severely affects the livelihoods of the world community in general and agricultural production and food security of the farming community in particular. Though trend analysis of meteorological variables is not new in Ethiopia, but limited researches were conducted on farmers’ perceptions on climate change and variability in Sekota district. Since it is among the most drought-prone areas of the country, due attention should be given to thoroughly detect trends of climatic variables with the background that the problem of one community is not very similar with others. Hence, considering this knowledge gap, the local level of smallholder farmers’ perceptions of climate change and variability, and comparison of their perceptions with the real world meteorological data was studied.
