- DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Rwanda’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.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Climate-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 writingDocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016This literature review is part of the CCAFS program on low emission agriculture flagship of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security.Document
Climate change mitigation through intensified pasture management: estimating greenhouse gas emissions on cattle farms in the Brazilian AmazonClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Cattle ranching in Brazil is a key driver of deforestation and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Brazilian government plans to reduce national GHG emissions by at least 36%, partly by reducing emissions in the livestock sector through strategies such as intensification, pasture improvement, and rotational grazing.Document
How Brazil's sustainable cattle schemes could beef up to conserve forests and sustainable rural livelihoodsClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Cattle ranching is the largest driver of Brazilian deforestation, a relevant emitter of greenhousegases, and an important source of local livelihoods. In response, many initiatives attempt to render Brazil’s beef production more environmentally and socially sustainable.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The dynamics of systemic societal transformations are not well understood, and the extent to which such transformations can be governed is contested.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Climate-smart agriculture (CSA)—agriculture and food systems that sustainably increase food production, improve resilience (or adaptive capacity) of farming systems, and mitigate climate change when possible—has quickly been integrated into the global development agenda.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that expected population growth, coupled with income growth, would require 70% more food to be produced by 2050. However, climate change, which among other things affects temperature, seasonality, rainfall, and extreme events, makes this goal even more challenging.Document
Integrating gender into climate change adaptation programs: a research and capacity needs assessment for Sub-Saharan AfricaClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Research shows that paying attention to gender matters not only for the equity of climate change adaptation programs but also for their efficiency and effectiveness. Many organizations working to increase resilience to climate change with local communities also recognize the importance of gender yet the degree to which gender is integrated in project implementation is unclear.
