In the context of the dry season, Nigerian women in agriculture are responding to climate change with resilience and adaptability. The adoption of alternative cultivation methods, such as hydroponics, demonstrates their innovative approach to address the effects of climate change on food production. Some women have also turned to engaging in advance agricultural training during the off-dry season to sustain themselves until the next farming season, showcasing their resourcefulness and determination (Jesuit Refugee Service, 2021). Despite facing numerous challenges due to climate change, female farmers are actively adapting to changing conditions, demonstrating their commitment to remaining productive (United States Agency for International Development, 2022).
FarmingFarmersFarms gathered that there have been initiatives focusing on empowering and educating women to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to adapt to climate change and remain productive during and after the farming season. These practices and initiatives collectively highlight the resilience, adaptability, and innovative spirit of Nigerian women in agriculture as they navigate challenges posed by the dry season and climate change. Therefore, it is suggested to the spirited and ambitious women eager to thrive in agriculture, especially amid the trials of the dry season by sharing the experiences of Nigerian women, as outlined above. It is essential for women like other men to also embrace innovation and alternative cultivation methods as potent tools to fortify productivity in the face of climate change by helping to benefit from the advantages of dry season farming.
