Boaz Waswa, a soil fertility specialist at the Alliance of Bioversity International and International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) based in Kenya, shared some climate-smart strategies that farmers can adopt to build resilience.

Shalika Vyas is also a fellow at the Alliance of Bioversity International/CIAT, focusing on agriculture and climate. She discusses how climate finance can help farmers adapt and mitigate the effects of climate change.
