From climate risk to climate resilience

Zambia, like most of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), is facing a future where smallholder crop production will be threatened by climate change. In this southern African nation, where smallholder farming is the norm, the effects of climate change — erratic rainfall, shorter seasons and prolonged dry spells — are already being felt. This case study offers a crash course in our approach to embedding climate-resilient agriculture practices with smallholder farmers in Zambia.

As part of Irish Aid’s Climate and Development Learning Platform, climate farmer field schools were established in Zambia’s Northern Province in 2016. In this case study, we present details of the methodology to enable this work to be taken forward and replicated by local government and other institutions committed to climate-resilient smallholder farming over the medium- to long-term.
