This article is part of the doctoral thesis entitled “The IRPAA and the Snap of Coexistence with the Semiarid Region as a Paradigm and Political Project in the Optics of Good Living”. bring the results obtained in experiments carried out at Escolas Famílias Agrícolas (EFAs), with emphasis on to the school located in the municipality of Sobradinho, state of Bahia/Brazil, serving the young family farmers in the region. In addition to the Alternation methodology used in this modality of teaching community and contextualized education, it was approached here the experience of the Network of Integrated Agricultural Family Schools in the Semi-Arid Region (REFAISA) in the formation of rural youth, especially from traditional communities of pasture, extractivists, agrarian reform settlers, riverside communities, quilombolas and peasant communities, introducing the Technical and Educational Program called Agroka'atinga for Sustainable Agriculture and Market Access, in five Schools Agricultural Families and on fifteen family properties in the states of Bahia and Sergipe. In this context, the EFAs inserted in their teaching-learning process, an approach on climate change, which causes lower thermal amplitude and changes in the pattern precipitation, favoring the appearance of extreme events, such as droughts, prolonged periods and increase in temperature, which will affect the production of some crops agricultural activities, demanding different attitudes and behaviors from populations, based on new paradigms (focus of the doctoral thesis), both in production systems and in the conscious consumption and marketing, ensuring socio-environmental sustainability and of technological innovations that promote the resilience of the Caatinga biome to changes climate change, resulting in the creation of the Agroka'atinga concept in the Brazilian semiarid region.
