CVF Ayanlade’s area of research is Climate change impacts on agriculture and society using applied environmental remote sensing and GIS. His CIRCLE research attempts to look at the climate change/variability impacts on agricultural sector, with particular reference to local farmer awareness and their adaptive capacities. The research holds the benefits of enhancing sensitivities to climate change and adaptive capacity of rural farmers through climate-smart agriculture. He hopes the knowledge and experience gained from this research and the CIRCLE fellowship will be very useful to him in his work as a lecturer and researcher in Nigeria.
