According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, extreme climate events will occur more frequently. In Burkina Faso, farmers involved in action research on the vulnerability of rural and urban areas, led by the Institut de l’Environnement et de Recherches Agricoles, have observed a decrease in annual rainfall volumes and an increase in temperatures. A participatory testing process has been used within the project “Rural Urban Cooperation on Water Management in the Context of Climate Change in Burkina Faso” (locally known as ACCA-VICAB) to facilitate farmers’ access to technological innovations that would enhance resilience in their production system.
