Abstract: For several years, climate change has been a major concern for many states. The impacts of this climatic variability are becoming more and more felt and this reality is proven in developing countries. Poor countries are particularly affected by the impacts of climate change, exacerbating their vulnerability to harsh weather. A large part of the population of so-called third world countries depends on agriculture as their main livelihood activity. Agriculture is very dependent on the climate. Thus, for its poverty, its sensibility, its exposure to natural disasters and its dependence on agriculture, Peru deserves special attention. This study aims to develop a decision-making methodology available to agricultural cooperatives in a collaborative context with SOCODEVI (International Development Cooperation Corporation). This methodology aims to identify members’ vulnerabilities as well as to identify adaptation strategies with regard to climate change and to take this dimension into account in the planning tools and technical interventions of cooperatives. The study has adopted a so-called participatory approach which will make it possible to adapt this guide to the different contexts in which it will be implemented. The results were obtained from focus groups, semi-directed interviews, both subjective (perceptions) and objective (literature) data, participatory mapping, GIS and mapping. This research has, among other things, shown that climate change is not a priority for members of cooperatives encountered in the department of Ancash. Although they are exposed and affected by them, the presence of coping strategies is almost non-existent. In this thesis, some suggestions will be proposed as part of a decision support methodology
