Sitting on the floor with tens of colleagues at a makeshift outdoor classroom in the Upper Egyptian governorate of Assiut, Ragab Ibrahim looks impressed with how the group’s lecturer has offered solutions to most of his farming woes.

 

Realizing that most of what he thought he knew about agriculture was wrong and that he now can deal scientifically with farming challenges, the 37-year-old farmer is remarkably cheerful.

 

 

 

Zahra Ahmed, the FAO’s lead project manager in Egypt, says that the program shows farmers how to save water, improve germination and pick better seeds in order to preserve the health of their crops and increase their yield. “It also gives them an idea about what climate change is and how to cope with it,” she adds.

 

Egypt produces less than 1% of the world’s total emissions of greenhouse gases. However, the North African country is believed to be one of the most vulnerable to the impacts and risks of climate change due to its unique combination of geography, population distribution, land-use and economic activity

 

 

Now, after the FAO students have seen improvement in their crop yields and health, their peers are asking them to tell what they have learnt. “My friend who declined to come and learn with me at the farmers’ school is now asking me to teach him about the new techniques … he has changed his mind after he saw the results,” Ibrahim says.
