New Publication Helps Farmers and Fisherman with Climate Change
The global community' awareness of climate change prevails through rampant crusades and comprehensive studies, most of which are hypothetical theories backed by empirical evidence of the trends on the topic. Moved by the vastness of the subject, author Gabriel Umoh and his colleagues collectively published "ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE: Agricultural Ecosystems and Gender Dimension."
"Adaptation to Climate Change" is a product of over four years of painstaking and rigorous research bringing together empirical knowledge on farmer's adaptation to climate change in a developing country. Detailed as well are the analyses of various dimensions of climate change on dryland and wetland agriculture from developing country's perspectives.
It discusses climate change from broad perspectives of the book drawing from practical field experience of the actors within the sector. It begins from sound theories and framework of climate change adaptation science, presents examples of how people are affected, could be affected, what they are doing and proffer actionable solutions for sustainable adaptation.
The book bids for the readers to act on stance of climate change. It is, therefore, a must for all genuinely interested in addressing the growing problem of climate change impacts in the most vulnerable section of the world - the developing countries.
