Climate Change Adaptation and Food Insecurity in Maradi District, Republic of Niger

Multiple Authors

Summary

Being aware of the present and future challenges posed by climate change on their socio economic development, local communities did not wait for external help to develop coping mechanisms and survive. In fact, these communities have lived in the same territory for generations and centuries and as a result, they have been able autonomously or assisted, to survive and even adapt to environmental changes. If the negative impacts of these changes are felt locally, the key elements needed for an effective and efficient adaptation are generally linked to parameters and factors that are beyond the local level or scale. The case study in communities (Tibiri, Maradawa and Gabi) of Maradi in the southern part of Niger allows us to highlight that multi level and multi scale characteristics of climate change adaptation in a food insecure context.
