Climate service empowers local farmers
Knowledge can be a pathway to success. Inadequate information about climate changes can result in subsistence farmers, and the agricultural community at large, making poor decisions which then have a knock-on effect on the ability of these farmers to feed themselves and their families.
The World Food Programme (WFP) has recognised this problem and supports a ‘climate services’ iniative, where farmers are trained in using climate information to create food security and protect their livelihoods.
