Using a new online weather prediction tool, the RIC4REC project has been identifying communities in Mali that are currently experiencing weather and climate scenarios similar to those that other communities could face in 30 years’ time. The “Farms of the Future” approach, developed by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) research programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), aims to improve the capacity of communities to adapt to climate change by connecting farmers who are currently confronting a range of climate risks with those who may be dealing with them down the line. The exchanges, in which community members visit their “future village”, allow farmers to learn about new opportunities to tackle climate stresses.
