This thesis looks at agricultural decision-making in changing environments. The environments in which smallholder producers in Southeast Asia operate in is changing rapidly. Increased incomes in the region have changed consumer demand, which provides opportunities in new markets for agricultural households. Producers also face several new challenges associated with climate change. Understanding agricultural decision-making is more important than ever, as the producers’ environments are changing faster than ever. In this thesis, we will look at agricultural decisions as they relate to climate change adaptation and mitigation, as well as why some producers enter new export markets while others do not.
