List of Farmers Day's Events
11.30-13.00: Enhancing farmers’ institutional capacity to gain effectiveness in a changing climate
World Farmers Organisation and International Fertilisers Association
Farmers’ networks allow exchange of information and best practices, challenges and solutions and provide farmers, especially youth, with capacity to tackle climate change. Best practices on farmers’ initiatives to mitigate and adapt to climate change and measurement of progress will be shown.

13.15-14.45: Is Sustainable Land and Water Management Compatible with Small-scale Farming under Climate Change?
Climate change adaptation in agriculture will be driven by growing pressure on water and land. Solutions include early-maturing, robust and water-efficient root and tuber crops, better water management, mechanisms to protect land rights and organize farmers, and an enabling policy environment.

15.00-16.30: Climate Justice, Adaptive Agriculture and Livestock Farming in Vulnerable Lands of Agrarians
Asia & Africa, frequent natural disasters are displacing populations; many are combating impacts of climate change by coupling technology and TEK. This event advocates for international status of climate refugees and promotes collective community interventions on climate adaptive agro-farming.
