Photos from visiting CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) climate-smart village activities in Wote, Kenya. During the visit, the East Africa team met up with farmers taking the lead on so-called climate-smart farming practices and techniques. The practices include better management of fruit trees, like Mango which is really big in the area, use of cover crops in the field and fertilizers, both organic and inorganic, drought-tolerant crops such as Serrado sorghum, green grams, beans, intercropping techniques with legumes and cereals, and water harvesting techniques such as road-water capture, and drip-irrigation and much more. The sites are learning sites for other farms around, to come and see how they too can adopt climate-appropriate farming practices to help them build resilience towards a changing climate.
