Building Environmental Resilience: A snapshot of farmers adapting to climate change in Kenya

This report examines the practise used to build resilience to climate change by farmers in Kenya.

In October 2014 interviews were conducted with farmers and members of the organisations that support them in West and Eastern Kenya. The aim was to identify which practices are being used successfully to build resilience, and alternatively which practices increase vulnerability.

The report concludes that climate change adaptation in agriculture is a concern for many farmers in Africa. In the case studies reviewed in this report, adaptive strategies aim to address issues of environmental degradation and drought through building soil fertility and focusing on water capture, retention and storage.
