Thematic briefing note: Cultivating farmer resilience to climate change

Farm Radio International supports farmers in learning about and applying techniques to increase their resilience to climate change. We work closely with partner radio stations in
sub-Saharan Africa to produce and broadcast participatory radio programs that provide practical, detailed information on adaptive agricultural practices. These radio programs — broadcast in local languages and featuring the voices of local farmers — give farmers the confidence they need to apply new practices. With greater resilience to rising temperatures, decreased rainfall and extreme weather, farmers can produce more food and achieve greater food security without compromising local landscapes.

This publication is part of FRI’s thematic brief series which highlights key focus areas of our work.
