Cassava is renowned for its drought tolerance and hardiness in stressful environments. Of the few studies which have quantified the impacts or responses of cassava to climate change, and all have found cassava to be the least affected crop when compared with other major staples such as maize, sorghum and millets (Jarvis, et al., 2012). (Lobell et al., 2008) found cassava to moderately benefit from climate change by 2030 with an average increase of 1.1% in production from 2000 through the use of statistical models. Not many studies about the impact of climate change on crops production in Indonesia, while that is important since agriculture is the main. Therefore, this study aimed to identify the climatic changes projected for cassava growing regions in Lampung, Indonesia for 2030 and beyond and to quantify the impacts of these changes on cassava climate suitability in that area.
