People of Madagascar adapt to rapidly changing climatic conditions

People living in Madagascar are learning to acclimatize to rapidly changing climatic conditions in what is said to be the fourth most climate change affected country worldwide, according to the UN Resident Coordinator.

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has introduced climate-smart practices to promote drought-resistant seeds such as sorghum and peanut and Californian drop-by-drop irrigation systems using solar pumps.

Madagascar is the fourth most vulnerable country in the world to climate change. It is recurrently hit by droughts and cyclones that are increasing in frequency, duration and intensity due to climate change.
