Farmers have important knowledge about weather and environmental change

Our two-part script of the week is a mini-drama that follows a family challenged by drought. Part one introduces some of the traditional signs that drought is on its way. As the Notes to broadcaster for part two indicate, part of our role and opportunity as radio broadcasters is to share information about traditional weather indicators with our farmer-listeners. The more we can share about traditional weather predictors – as well as modern scientific methods of predicting weather – the better chance our listeners have to respond to changing weather in time to ensure food security.
