Extension’s role and stakeholders’ intervention in climate change advocacy

Taiwo Odeleye [1]

10 21

The world’s agricultural system has been terribly affected by climate change and consequently the future of agriculture, its practices and productivity is hampered. Hence, this paper presents the agricultural and environmental problems associated with climate change and seeks to proffer possible solutions through the intervention of extension services and stakeholders. It focuses on the role of agricultural extension and its immense import in influencing crop production practices that will ensure sustainability and improve soil management. To effect a change in a diverging economy with  critical climatic conditions, it becomes imperative that scientific, technological and conceptual policy practices that will reduce negative environmental impacts must be integrated and implemented.
