Understanding Farmer Perspectives on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in very useful in the entire region of Africa. Agriculture is vulnerable to climate change and a source of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Farmers face pressures to adjust agricultural systems to make them more resilient in the face of increasingly variable weather (adaptation) and reduce GHG production (mitigation). Global climate change is widely viewed as one of the most significant challenges facing society today. Agriculture is vulnerable to climate shifts and a significant source of the greenhouse gases (GHGs) that are driving those changes.
The big question I always asked is How to help local farmers prepare for climate change in Africa. Floods as well as droughts and heatwaves are increasing and will continue to do so in Africa. Farmers and governments need to adapt to this changing climate regime. But adaptation requires decisions to be made under high uncertainty, often with incomplete knowledge. This makes planning and investing in it difficult
African farmers need to adapt news strategies toward confronting climate change challenges affecting crops and farming activities in the entire region
