(Photo: Fabiola Ortiz / IPS) Marrakech -- With climate change posing growing threats to smallholder farmers, experts working around the issues of agriculture and food security say it is more critical than ever to implement locally appropriate solutions to help them adapt to changing rainfall patterns. Most countries consider agriculture a priority when it comes to their plans to limit the rise of global temperatures to less than 2 degrees C. In line with the Paris Climate Change Agreement, 95 percent of all countries included agriculture in their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). "The climate is changing. We don't have rains that we used to have in the past. In the last decade, we had two consecutive years of intense drought and we lost all the production. The animals all died because they had no water," Ahmed Khiat, 68, a small farmer in the Moroccan community of Souaka, told IPS. Khiat comes from a long line of ...

The Tulalip are one of dozens of Pacific Northwest tribes -- both in Washington State and British Columbia -- intertwined by their reliance on and reverence for salmon.

Tulalip, Washington -- The flat-bottom boat weaves across bends in the broad, mud-colored Qwuloolt Estuary, scaring up squawking blue herons and geese along the sloping banks of muck. Scattered log booms poke out.

(Photo: OnceAndFutureLaura) A glance at Donald Trump's shortlists for secretaries of the Departments of Energy, Environment, Agriculture and the Interior is like looking at a shortlist for the four horsemen of the apocalypse.  Exhaust rises from a smoke stack in Lakewood, Washington, on December 23, 2009.
