Local Agricultural Adaptation

Agricultural adaptation is often proposed as a major gamechanger for poverty, hunger and vulnerability in general. Nevertheless, populations dependent on agriculture are often classified as significantly vulnerable, undeniably so with the increasing focus on adverse climate change impacts. The UN only recently highlighted how drought increasingly threatens many marginal populations. Adaptation is often proposed to decrease vulnerability and ensure agricultureĀ“s capacity to increase resilience and food

security of marginal populations. However, the focus on climate change within local agricultural adaptation risks neglecting the underlying causes of vulnerability, such as the significance of unequal socio-political systems. Lack of acknowledging these underlying causes could exacerbate vulnerability of marginal populations. C-hub aims to encourage reflections of experiences in local agricultural adaptation, recognizing the importance of agricultural adaptation for resilience building. Ā
