Roadmap to Build Recommendations for Climate Change Adaptation Among Smallholders: Methodology sharing from the Greener Belt Project experience
With the proposal to support the development of strategies to promote adaptation to climate change by family farmers in Essuatíni (Africa), this project began with a methodological sharing between FGVces and members of the government of Essuatíni interested in the study carried out in the region of the Alto Tietê Basin in São Paulo (see Cinturão + Verde). This step was followed by the elaboration of a socio-territorial diagnosis and an analysis of the risks and vulnerabilities of climate change with the objective of: knowing the profile of farmers and agricultural production in the country; understanding how changes in weather patterns have impacted and can impact local food production and the living conditions of farmers. The knowledge generated was disseminated mainly through a cycle of three face-to-face workshops held in three territories of the country, with about 120 participants, including farmers and public managers. There was also a face-to-face event to close the project on the campus of Queen Mary University in London.
