Climate change and agroecological approaches

Climate change and agroecological approaches

Vol.19-2, June 2017

There is increasing evidence that agroecological approaches help in coping with climate change. While we cannot stop the changes that are happening in our environment, we can adapt to the changing situations so that farm livelihoods, food production, our ecosystems and the nations health sustain for longer periods. Innovative farmers have shown various ways and means to tide over the crisis of unpredictable weather conditions. This issue puts together some of the ground experiences. Hope these experiences inspire many more to practise climate resilient agriculture.
