The ETP and GIZ have produced a free training manual to help smallholder farmers increase their resilience to climate change. The manual shows good practice farming methods and has been designed for KTDA (Kenya Tea Development Agency) training staff that work directly with farmers to change practices and increase resilience. The manual is part of a wider 3-year project to help more than 50,000 farmers in Kenya.
