With farmers on the climate frontline
Recipes for Change is a series of recipes from developing countries that bring you a taste of someone else's life. It gives you the chance to cook the same meals as the Hong family in the Mekong Delta or Olive Bibutsuwahoze and her family in eastern Rwanda.
These recipes also examine the threats that climate change brings to rural communities, many of which affect the essential ingredients used in these families' main meal of the day. They show you how IFAD is working with farmers to adapt to the very real impacts of climate change in their communities.
