GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change

 

Hosted on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and online, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Change united 7,000 participants from 164 countries and rallied over 27 million people on social media around what humanity can still do to avoid the worsening impacts of the climate crisis.

Featuring 228 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth and government leaders, and 96 incredible partner organizations, the second edition of GLF Climate called for a just transition to a stewardship economy that puts people and nature first.

 

Soil protection and rehabilitation supports climate change adaptation

 

Adaptation to climate change is a major challenge for smallholder farmers and agro-pastoralists in sub-Saharan Africa as changes in climatic conditions are already eroding livelihoods while households face numerous barriers to responding effectively (access to finance, technology, knowledge). Healthy and fertile soils are a critical element for resilient agriculture. Many climate risks such as damages caused by floods or droughts manifest in the intersection of soils and water.

Building on experience from Benin and Ethiopia, this session shows how soil protection and rehabilitation supports climate change adaptation and what is needed for scaling and sustaining impact.
