Community Seminars Held to Share Research Results

For over three years, the CHIESA project has had its researchers working in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia. Samples have been collected, lab analyses have been done, numerous training sessions held and papers published. While all these activities have proved necessary and worthwhile for the researchers involved, just how have the targeted communities, and farmers in particular, benefitted from all this?

Of its many objectives, the CHIESA Project’s key aim is to “fill knowledge gaps related to natural and human-induced factors contributing to land use/ land cover change, and climate variability/ change impacts on ecosystem services and food security in Eastern Africa’s mountain ecosystems”. With this in mind, the project hosted and facilitated two one-day events in Moshi, Tanzania and Wundanyi, Kenya, dubbed ‘Community Seminar on Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation’, held on the 16th and 18th September, 2014, respectively. The seminars took place at the Uhuru Lutheran Hotel in Moshi, and at the Lavender Garden Hotel in Wundanyi.

Featuring audiences made up of farmers, agricultural extension officers and representatives from agriculture ministries in Kenya and Tanzania, project researchers delivered detailed presentations of their research results so far, as well as offered practical solutions for common farm problems.

Part of CHIESA’s goal is to ensure that the public and private sectors are adequately informed and have enhanced capacity for adaptation to and monitoring of climate change, partnership with journalists in documentation and dissemination of project activities and results to stakeholders is necessary. As such, journalists from various media houses and specialties were in attendance to interview farmers on actual climate change impacts felt, and the strategies adopted to minimize or eliminate them.
