September 26, 12.00 - 13.00 BST / The Building Resilience in Chad and Sudan (BRICS) project is introducing Conservation Agriculture as one of the technologies to strengthen people’s capacities to adapt to and absorb climate change.

Also, a more participatory extension method has been followed by engaging farmer trainers to train their peers.
