On the ground empirical testing of the use of the climate analogue tool as support for designing adaptation strategies in agriculture. The CCAFS “Farms of the Future” project uses the climate analogue tool to connect farmers to their possible climate futures via farm visits. This novel approach of farmer-to-farmer exchanges between spatial analogues integrates participatory learning principles, in order to promote knowledge sharing between producer communities. The approach also permits the participatory diagnosis of capacities and needs, thus aiding in the design of community-appropriate adaptation strategies. Lastly, it improves understanding of local practices and available tools for enabling change and allows addressing farmer’s social, cultural and gender specific barriers for enabling behavioral change and improve adaptive capacity.
