This week has seen the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) take place in Egypt. Fairtrade farmers were there to tell world leaders to act now to support those most affected by climate change around the world.
Farmers in Ghana are responding to climate change, with support from Fairtrade. The following newsround article features the Sankofa project in Ghana.
Sankofa means to “go back, look for, and gain wisdom, power and hope” in Ghanaian Akan language. The project supports farmers to develop ways to protect their farms from the effects of climate change, such as rising temperatures and unpredictable rainfall, which devastate cocoa farms.
