Side Event

Climate Resilience The Farmers Way: Handling climate extremes without engineered seeds, strategies and external packages.

USC Canada

Date and Time
3 May 2012 18:15 - 19:45

Sixteenth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice

The event will offer very concrete examples of how farmer-led experimentation and resilience strategies are helping farmers to build seed security, feed their families, and stay on their lands, despite unpredictable and challenging climate events. If we are to build food security in vulnerable areas, we need to stop thinking about is missing but rather start with what is there, building on deep seated knowledge of local landscapes and the biodiversity that has kept generations alive.
