Bocage Farming - Mali
In a country where nearly 50% of the population lives below the poverty line and nearly 60% of the land is considered arid and desert, climate change is contributing to food insecurity.
Conservation Agriculture - Honduras
In Honduras, rural households frequently experience food insecurity and continued threats of drought and hotter temperatures will have implications for crop production. Conservation Agriculture can help farmers adapt to these changing conditions.
Floating Gardens - Bangladesh
Many of us grew up with images of flooding in Bangladesh. Climate change is making things worse. Floating gardens can help farmers adapt.
Climate Conversation: Kenya
For millions of subsistence farmers in Kenya, climate change is not a political debate. It is a reality in which adaptation can mean the difference between life and death. The Climate Conversation: Kenya video series is a chance to move past the white noise and to get up close and personal with the issues of climate change and environmental stewardship. It is a chance to meet people, not statistics; to hear stories, not arguments. It is an invitation to a conversation.
