We encourage our members to diversify their farms to include other sources of income, adapting not only to the market, but also to climate change.
Climate change techniques
CAA members are trained to diversify. During inspections, our staff members assess whether farmers have alternative sources of income. Climate change might transform their business soon, so members are educated on what climate change is and what can be done about it. In these sessions, we teach farmers how to protect forests, how to plant disease/pest-resistant species, and how to harvest water where possible.
