CVF Tanimonure will research into underutilized indigenous vegetables (UIVS) for dietary diversity and revenue generation in response to climate change in Nigeria. A growing body of literature on climate change suggests that indigenous crops are resilient and as such adapt better to the negative effects of climate change. She will seek to establish relationship between climate change variables and the livelihood, dietary diversity and food security of the producers of UIVs in Nigeria.
