Co-creating a sustainable future


Social technology for the adaptation of climate change in Brazil

Contact person

Low precipitation, high temperatures, sandy soils and regular droughts characterize the region Sertão located in Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia. Agricultural practices are often inefficient and as a result local communities are often short of income. Due to insufficient resources and know-how, local farmers in Brazil struggle to adapt to the devastating effects of climate change. By applying a Stakeholder Dialogues approach this project explicitly aimed to develop innovative solutions which cannot be developed without the whole spectrum of stakeholders being involved in the process.
