Climate change and farmers

This issue of Farm Radio Weekly is devoted to climate change. The recent climate change talks in Durban have received wide media coverage. Farmer’s organizations were represented at the talks, although the outcomes have disappointed many observers, especially those from developing countries.

We have chosen two stories related to the talks. One story details how local solutions to climate change are often more appropriate and long-lasting. Local successes are also generating discussion at the policy level.

The second story talks about the efforts of women’s groups to get their opinions heard at the conference.

We also present a short report written for us by Serge Adam’s Diakité, who attended the Durban talks as part of the AMARC (World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters) team.

Happy reading!
