When Colombia met Senegal: A photostory

The “chiva” bus is something of a national symbol for Colombia, and was in the past the main way that Colombian farmers transported their goods to market.

Today, agricultural stakeholders from Colombia are traveling “chiva-style” through Senegal to learn how its farmers and institutions have dealt with a difficult and highly variable climate. Ten agricultural stakeholders from Colombia, including representatives from the rice and cereals sector (FEDEARROZ and FENALCE), the national meteorological institute (IDEAM), and the National University of Colombia, plus a dignatory from the Ministry of Agriculture for Honduras are being joined by Senegalese officials from the National Meteorological Institute (ANACIM) and the Department of Agricultural Extension for the week-long experience.

The exchange is part of an initiative led by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Colombia to facilitate the adaptation of agricultural systems to climate change.
