Arame Tall, one of the CGIAR Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) gender grant recipients, is currently at the 6th Community-Based Adaptation conference in Hanoi, Vietnam. In a video interview with IIED, she speaks about the similarities in local coping mechanisms between Asia and Africa; the gap between local adaptation needs and national policies; the need for clear and useful weather alerts for farmers; and her vision for the future of community-based adaptation. Learn more about Arame's work on agricultural climate change adaptation, gender, and climate information services.

CCAFS scientists are at the Community Based Adaptation conference all week. More updates will be posted on this blog, on twitter @cgiarclimate and the CCAFS facebook page.
