What challenges and concerns are created by climate change, and how do farmers in Vietnam evaluate possible solutions?
In July, researchers from the Climate Change, Agricultural and Food Security Program – including Bioversity International scientists – and farmers in Ma village, northern Vietnam, weighed up different options for tackling climate risks specific to farming systems in this area.
The discussions of this start-up workshop are part of a region-wide programme across Lao PDR, Cambodia and Vietnam to introduce and test new climate-smart technologies that can have important implications for food security and income generation.
Find out more about the challenges that farmers in Ma village are facing, and the solutions envisaged by farmers and scientists in this blog by CIAT ‘Farmers debate their options in a changing climate’

The tools will be whittled down and adapted for farmers to tackle the climate changes within their specific landscape. Credit: G.Smith/CIAT
