Anna Majavu draws attention to the research of Brian Mandipaza – a researcher and farmer from Zimbabwe. In this article, the importance of indigenous knowledge in small-scale farming is brought into focus in the context of climate change. Brian Mandipaza's research tells the story of how small-scale farmers have returned to the use of more traditional farming methods following years of practising conservation agriculture. Mandipaza highlights the importance of incorporating indigenous knowledge systems about agriculture as part of any new climate change resilience practices.
