Climate Risk Management in Agricultural Extension (CRMAE) Handbook

Grossi, Amanda; Dinku, Tufa

The Climate Risk Management in Agricultural Extension (CRMAE) Handbook is an accompaniment and concise summary of the more comprehensive CRMAE Reference Guide. Both the Handbook and Reference Guide are training and reference materials intended to be used during implementation of the CRMAE course designed for Ethiopia’s subject matter specialists (SMS) and extension staff, including development agents (DAs). It may also be used by other actors, such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or community-based organizations (CBOs), who work closely with farmers and those who support them. This Handbook aims to provide foundational knowledge on climate and agricultural decision making; and practical tools to analyze climate-related risks, use appropriate weather and climate information to support agricultural decisions, communicate complex climate information effectively with farmers, and integrate climate services into agricultural extension activities.

Keywords: Ethiopia; agriculture; climate change; climate variability; food security; education; extension approaches; capacity development; climate-smart agriculture; climatology; monitoring systems; forecasting; participatory approaches; Goal 2 Zero Hunger
