Mitigation of Climate Change: Developing Common Understanding

The promotion of climate change among small farmers’ groups is a challenge The current climate change has affected the cycle of cultivation and the process of cultivating agricultural and forestry crops in many areas.

These small-scale farmers actually understand the cycle of growing the agricultural products they handle. This cycle is usually obtained with signs of nature and the exchange of experiences between other farmers.

In some places, intensive farmers are usually more aware of the natural environment conditions around their living, including climate change. While farmers are not sedentary, usually look at the cycle through the introduction of constellations and other signs of nature. These permanent and non-permanent farmers need to get knowledge of climate change from climate change experts combined with their empirical experience directly from the field.

The empirical experience of farmers in recognizing climate change is crucial for improving cropping cycles and predicting harvesting season and of course related to product marketing to wider consumers. Climate change experts can be sure to recognize and identify climate change from weather forecasts and reports from several remote climate change identification tools and references from other experts.

Meanwhile, local knowledge is more attached to agricultural and forestry practitioners who face weather changes everyday.

This challenge is quite big since climate change and mitigation are urgent needs that concern the livelihood of many people.

Especially for groups that are vulnerable to change, anticipating climate change information and action will need to be an important part of the learning process of agricultural and forestry producer actors,

On the other hand, these vulnerable farmer groups need to fulfill their daily needs by carrying out production activities. The challenge is that they are a vulnerable group that still needs to meet their primary needs, while the current challenge is that these farmer groups need extra energy and knowledge relevant to climate change.
