- DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The livestock sector is one of the major contributors in agriculture, by some estimates contributing up to 18% of the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Transplanting 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.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.
