Agriculture in Serbia already faces significant losses due to climate change. Increased drought occurrences and periods of high temperatures and extreme precipitation have already affected the yields (e.g. drought in 2012 lead to a decrease in yields that caused a loss estimated to 2 billion USD). Climate change projections show that we can expect further declines in snowfall, increase in summer temperatures, as well as declines in summer rainfall. In order to better understand the impacts of climate change on the agriculture sector (in particular fruits and vegetables production), and the potential for farmers’ adaptation to the impacts of climate change, a survey of 600 farmers was conducted in 15 municipalities/cities in Central Serbia: Aleksinac, Leskovac, Malo Crniće, Merošina, Paraćin, Pirot, Smederevo, Smederevska Palanka, Valjevo, Velika Plana, Veliko Gradiste, Žabari, Zaječar, Kruševac, Požarevac.
