Adaptation to Climate Change by Mphunga villagers, Malawi

The Malawian Red Cross Society, supported by the RC/RC Climate Centre and the Malawi Meteorological Service, have been working with Mphunga village, delivering simple information about climate change and the need for adaptation. As a result the program has pushed villagers to take real action.

They began adapting their activities in simple ways such as substituting maize crops with rice and replacing chicken with duck stock, as ducks float and chicken drown. With our facilitation, the villagers produced a participatory video to share, through video screenings workshops, these community-based adaptation practices with four other neighbor communities that face similar problems.
