Tailor-Made Training on Climate Resilient Agriculture for Tewa Grantee Partners

Climate change is becoming a global issue and posing a great threat to the lives of many farmers as it is already affecting agriculture. Increased uncertainties of weather pattern have caused serious distress to the agricultural system. So, many studies have reported that future climate change will probably increase the risk of food insecurity for some vulnerable groups such as the poor.

Since Nepalese farmers whose mainstay is agriculture are hard hit by such distress in agriculture caused by climate change, farmers need to be equipped with new skills and social learning to continuously adapted agriculture decision-making. Climate Resilient Agriculture (CRA) is an approach to transform and reorient agricultural development under the new realities of climate change which enhances the capacities of farmers to cope with the negative impact of climate change and thus helps for securing sustainable livelihoods.
