Abul Quasem Al-Amin and Gazi Mahabubul Alam

Abstract:
This study explores the influence of El-Niño related climate change that impacts the development of agriculture sector in Malaysia. In order to identify the impacts, this study analyzes the information of El-Niño events from 1997-1998. This would offer of having a standpoint to formulate the future strategy with an understanding of the nature of El-Niño and its vulnerability which has been hit by the Pacific Rim region and the Southern oscillation, including in Malaysia. Since, the currently available researches are inadequate to observe the events of El-Niño, formulation of strategic planning is mainly based on assumption and hypothetical projection locally. Under such climate, this study proposes the ‘Action plan’ for furthering the strength by chalking-out the prevailing weakness of adapting capacity of El-Niño and its adverse impact on agriculture. The proposed action plan ultimately offers the socio-economic wellbeing in Malaysia by significantly reducing the vulnerability of El-Niño and enhancing the performance.
