Uganda: Field schools training farmers adapt to climate change
Change in weather, characterised by prolonged drought spells and irregular rainfall patterns, is one of the evident impacts of climate change. And, in Uganda, a country where agriculture relies on natural factors like rainfall, irregularities in such factors make farming very difficult, reports the Daily Monitor.
Mubende is one of the six districts in the southern cattle belt implementing a project to train farmers in ways of practising agriculture that enables them adapt to the harsh realities of climate change. Community Care for Development Uganda (C-Care), a non-government organisation, with support from Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), is implementing such a project. It is a two-year national pilot project.
