Enhancing Farmers’ Climate Change Resilience in Cameroon
Climate change is one issue that is receiving attention from policy makers across the world because it poses a threat to food security and threatens to increase people’s vulnerability to floods and droughts.
This is expected to occur as the earth experiences changes in temperature, humidity and rainfall patterns.
Climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture, forestry, fisheries and tourism may find it more difficult to adapt to climate change. It, therefore, threatens to reverse progress made in social and economic aspects of development.
In Zambia, Government is alert to climate change and has been working with different partners in coming up with programmes and projects that offer solutions to the effects of climate change. One such project is Strengthening Climate Resilience in Kafue Sub-Basin (SCRIKA), which seeks to counter climate change through adaption and mitigation.
