What can be done?
The poor, including small farmers, have an especially difficult time coping with climate change. NGOs, such as MCC, have a place to help.
One of MCC's stated goals is to help farmers with climate change (MCC’s fall 2020 A Common Place, p. 9). MCC and many other NGOs have a wealth of experience with extension and conducting research to assist small farmers with numerous problems.
Amid the high level policy changes and programs needed for combating and coping with climate change, there is a real need for small projects that assist the poor on the ground with personal contact right where they are to cope and make decisions.
