Supporting Communities in Building Resilience through Agro Pastoral Field Schools

Building resilience of vulnerable communities to the vagaries of climate change (CC ) is not business as usual but, rather calls for more transformative approaches that can organically evolve to suit the dynamic and unique needs of different farming systems. However, most of the service delivery mechanisms are overstretched and built on the conventional model of unidirectional extension messages based on broad recommendations. The ecosystem-based Farmer Field Schools (FFS) approach provides an excellent platform that is flexible and responsive to meeting the requisite tailored skills of the farmers.
