Climate Change Adaptation

This select session of the Young Farmers Conference was live streamed on our Facebook page on Thursday, December 7th, 2017 at Stone Barns Center.

Climate Change Adaptation

Increased intensity and frequency of storms, drought and flooding, altered hydrological cycles and precipitation variance have implications for future food availability. The Vermont Agricultural Resilience in a Climate Change Initiative (VAR) helps farms of all types become more resilient to these new weather patterns in both short and long term. Join UVM Agroecology Professor Ernesto Mendez and Educational Coordinator, Lecturer Vic Izzo and doctoral student Alisha Utter as they share information and lessons learned from two projects in VAR’s initiative while also assessing resilience in coffee-dependent communities of Honduras, Nicaragua, and Haiti. It introduces key aspects of Participatory Action Research (PAR) as a tool for farmers to use when addressing these key issues and include hands-on exercises for participants to take-way from the workshop.

Speakers: Dr. Ernesto Mendez, Dr. Victor Izzo and Alisha Utter
