Case study on the impact of climate change on the agriculture of an indigenous community in Guyana
Much like developing countries, indigenous peoples the world over are among the least responsible for climate change, yet they are expected to be some of those most blighted by its effects. This case study from Guyana focuses on Amerindian women in agriculture and examines the impact of natural disasters and climate change on their cassava production.The case study also illustrates how local populations have learnt to adjust to climatic changes which have been accepted as normal, natural processes.
