Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

/Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

cuuminty2Smallholder farmers are one of the most vulnerable groups to climate change, yet efforts to support farmer adaptation are hindered by the lack of information on how they are experiencing and responding to climate change. SHF farming systems, livelihoods and survival are adversely affected by Climate Change because of their direct dependence on climate and natural resources, relative poverty, and often poor access to support systems and safety nets. CAPCA will in the next five years focus more on promoting the green growth agenda, promoting general adaptation measures that are necessary, practical and appropriate in the different regions. Research, advocacy and Information sharing amongst farmers will be key strategies in advancing these approaches.
