Clarendon, Jamaica. August 20, 2019: Clarendon Farmers Diversifying Crop Production Over 300 farmers from nine communities in Clarendon have increased their awareness of climate change and its effects on agriculture. Many are now diversifying their crop production to ensure greater responsiveness to climate impacts and disaster risk.
This is due to the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Change while Reducing Disaster Risk in Peckham, Clarendon and Surrounding Communities” Project which is funded by the Caribbean
Development Bank through the Community Disaster Risk Reduction Fund (CDRRF).
