Improving community awareness and facilitating access to new technologies can support effective adaptation to climate change

Barley-based livestock farmers in the Middle East and North Africa face an uncertain future due to global climate variability. Often active on the fringes of deserts and steppes, or at high elevations with modest or no inputs, erratic rains and prolonged drought threaten the livelihoods of an already impoverished population. Increased evapotranspiration, drier soils, and shorter growing seasons will lead to decreasing productivity and declining incomes. This research initiative enhances community adaptation to climate change, improving awareness and facilitating access to technologies and management practices that strengthen resilience and productivity.
