Abstract

This article examines the various strategies and collaborative efforts undertaken to build climate resilience in Madagascar, focusing on the agricultural sector. It delves into the geographical and climatic context of Madagascar, the impact of climate change on the island, particularly on the farming sector, biodiversity, water scarcity, and food security. The article also discusses the challenges cotton farmers face and the role of initiatives like the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) in promoting sustainable farming practices. The importance of government and NGO involvement, education and awareness, and ongoing research and innovation in fostering climate resilience is highlighted.

Conclusion

A comprehensive strategy, including cooperation between the government and non-governmental organizations, education and awareness campaigns, ongoing research, and innovation, is needed to build climate resilience in Madagascar. Programmes such as the Better Cotton Initiative play a critical role in providing farmers with sustainable farming techniques that increase crop yields, lessen their effect on the environment, and improve the general well-being of communities. To alleviate the consequences of global warming and ensure Madagascar's cultivation has a sustainable future, these regions need ongoing work.
