Local Technical Agroclimatic Committees-Putting tailored climate information in the hands of farmers
Local Technical Agroclimatic Committees (LTACs) have become essential tools for farmers in Latin America to manage their crops according to climate conditions. LTACs provide a space for designing and implementing effective actions to reduce agroclimatic risk in agriculture for diverse stakeholders, such as decision-makers, the private sector, academic institutions, scientists, and most importantly, farmers.
In this video, learn how LTACs work, where LTACs are established and how they help actors face the challenges of climate change. Learn how you can implement an LTAC in your country following the link: https://hdl.handle.net/10568/105442.
