Description

Climate-smart agricultural technologies and practices are helping women and men farmers in Senegal cultivate crossseason for worthwhile returns to lift them out of poverty. Climate change and variability is thought to interact with multiple stressors of the agriculture sector in Senegal, which threatens the sector’s ability to contribute significantly to the national economy and to the food security needs of the expanding population. Adoption of ‘smart’ innovations eases the impact of hydro-meteorological shocks caused by seasonal uncertainties of rainfall induced by climate change.
