The present study analysed determinants of farm-level climate adaptation measures in Vietnam using a multinomial logit model fitted to data from a cross-sectional survey of 350 rice farmers. The findings show that human capital (farmer’s education level), social capital, financial capital (access to credit), farmland size, institutional factors (farmland tenure status), extension service access and constraint to market are the determining factors of climate-smart agricultural technology adoption among farmers. The results demonstrate the need for policymaking designed to improve the probability of households applying climate-smart agricultural technology as the most crucial step in successfully implementing adaptive agricultural production strategies to climate change.
