Women are adapting to climate change through climate-smart agriculture

"Understanding climate change has drastically changed the way we work the land."

Korka further notes:  "now that we understand these changes and what causes them, we work more during the off-season, because we know that this is the best season for better results and better harvests."  

"It is important to know how to use land, in order not to have a negative impact on the environment and the ecosystem in general. We must protect the environment in such a way it remains clean, without waste or garbage. We have been entrusted with the land, so it is important that we take care of it."
