Tanzania is an East African country with an economy that depends on crops like corn and rice. Climate change is causing warmer temperatures and unpredictable rainfall in Tanzania, and crop yields are suffering. Not all farmers are affected equally. Small farms are impacted more than large farms, and women farmers have additional obstacles that make adapting to climate change extra difficult.
Jennifer Olson, far right above, is an associate professor in the Department of Media and Information at Michigan State University. Listen to her describe her research on how the climate is changing in Tanzania, and how that change affects Tanzanian farmers.
