A. Testa / Panos Pictures
Cecilia Schubert from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) discusses how social learning can be just as valuable as a new, avant-garde climate-modelling tool when it comes to climate change decision-making. Despite being a somewhat 'soft' social science approach in a highly technology-focused sphere, Cecilia presents why social learning has a lot to offer the climate change agenda as well as more general sustainable rural development work.
