Aggregating indigenous and scientific knowledge for better climate adaptation

Climate change poses a major threat to the food security of rural populations in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), where the environment is already severe. The vulnerability of rural communities in the region is particularly acute due to their dependence on rain-fed agriculture and natural resources. To improve the adaptive capacity of farmers in SSA and help protect their livelihoods, it is essential that all of the climate information available is harnessed to help anticipate and respond to climate risks, such as drought or flooding.
