Message 8: There are many existing solutions to some of the known challenges of climate change that can be scaled up. These include improved soil and water management practices, better climate information services, and greater access to agricultural resources among women. Our most important challenge, as farmers and as supporters, is not to invent new practices and approaches, but to share what already works as widely as possible to create global change for the better.
The links below are to videos of key influential spokespersons providing statements that could be used to support or endorse the key message 8 of this guide/toolkit.
“Agriculture is one of the sectors most affected by climate change, if it is done wrong it will also lead to more carbon emissions. We believe climate smart agriculture is really essential for assuring food security for everybody.”
“The biggest challenge right now is climate change.” “Farmer education is very important to help them to understand the variability in the seasons and the need to adopt technologies that can mitigate against climate change.”
