Small Scale Farmers' Climate Change (COP) Campaign

The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP) every year sits with parties to review the progress made in the fight against the climate crisis following the 2015 Paris Agreement. In the Conferences, nationally determined contribution targets are presented to set focus on rapid reduction of global emissions, and Climate finance among others.  It is however, concerning that small scale farmers who bear the blunt of the crisis and the custodians of sustainable solutions are always on the periphery.

This infographic video illustrates the contribution of Ecological Organic Agriculture in conserving the environment, increasing incomes as well as increasing small scale farmers’ nutritional and food security. It further illustrates Ecological organic farming practices that farmers can adopt in order to increase production.
