Petra Tschakert, associate professor of geography at Penn State, conducting research on climate change adaptation with rural communities in Ghana. Her research involves innovative methods for co-learning between scientists and citizens who experience a changing climate, including community videos of changing landscapes, interviews, village-level recording of rainfall, explaining global and local drivers of climate change (like emissions and deforestation), and concrete adaptation strategies like building storage facilities for crops like cassava and yam.
