    “We’re in this together”: Changing intra-household decision making for more cooperative smallholder farming

    Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Antwerp, 2016
    Conceptualising smallholder farming households as collective action institutions, that make interrelated decisions about investment, resource use and allocation in a common household farm, may contribute to understanding widely observed uncooperative outcomes, such as yield gaps, gender gaps in productivity, suboptimal or Pareto inefficient sustainable intensification and climate change adaptat

    Methods for identifying low emissions development options for agriculture

    Climate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016
    Low emissions development strategies (LEDS) are national economic and social development plans that promote sustainable development while reducing GHG emissions. While LEDS programs have helped to mainstream economy-wide planning for low emissions, planning for low emissions agriculture has remained nascent.

    Gender dimensions on farmers’ preferences for direct-seeded rice with drum seeder in India

    Climate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016
    Transplanting is the dominant mode of rice establishment in India. Transplanted rice requires more labour and water and emits more greenhouse gases into the environment than DSR. In the past, DSR was mainly practiced in areas with low population density and where low or uncertain water availability prevented intensification of rice systems.

    Review of climate service needs and opportunities in Rwanda

    Climate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016
    Rwanda’s variable and changing climate is an increasingly serious challenge to the country’s agricultural sector and farming population. Climate information services are emerging as a means to support farmers to manage risk and provide an opportunity to build the resilience of agriculture to climate at all time scales.

    Evidence-based opportunities for out-scaling climate-smart agriculture in East Africa

    Climate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016
    Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is being widely promoted as a solution for food insecurity and climate change adaptation in food systems of sub-Saharan Africa, while simultaneously reducing the rate of greenhouse gas emissions. Governments throughout Africa are writing
