Climate Analogues

Climate Analogues is used to identify areas that experience statistically similar climatic conditions, but which may be separated temporally and/or spatially. In essence, the approach allows you to glimpse into the future by locating areas whose climate today is similar to the projected future climate of a place of interest (i.e. where can we find today the future climate of Nairobi, Kenya?), or vice-versa.

Farms of the Future

December 4, 2015 en

A glimpse of the future. The CCAFS “Farms of the Future” project uses the climate analogue tool to connect farmers to their possible climate futures via farm visits. Through this novel anthropological approach of farmer-to-farmer exchanges between spatial analogues, CCAFS aims to establish, test and validate a sound methodology allowing identification of social, cultural and gender specific barriers for enabling behavioral change, therefore, an increased adaptive capacity.

Nyando farmers on a journey to spur adaptation to climate change

Future scenario planning will help smallholder farmers improve their adaptive capacity and reduce shocks caused by climate variability.

Farmers from the Nyando climate-smart villages (CSVs) along with seven representatives from government and non-governmental organizations were involved in a six day climate adaptation learning journey in November 2014 to enable them prepare for their future climate.

Farms of the future: a two-way learning exchange

Climate change is a threat to agriculture, food security and the livelihoods of small farmers in West Africa. In order to strengthen the adaptive capacities of farmers to this phenomenon, the CGIAR research programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) has developed the “farms of the future” approach.
