What can I learn from how people in those places cope with their climate?
  • 7. 7 • 3/21/11Farmer-to-farmer exchange:Community facing climate changelearns adaptation strategies from Home siteanalogous community Lushoto Farmers from Lushoto visit Nyombo in Tanzania, and return home to share Nyombo Analogue site (how Lushoto will look in the future)

What do women want to learn? •Is it culturally appropriate for women to interact with members of another community? Are there ways to overcome any restrictions? •Do men and women have the same socio-economic ability to act on what they learn? •Do women have enough educational background to participate in a dialogue? •Can women travel as far and at the same time as men? •Do women have the same adaptation priorities as men?
