- DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture comprise 10-12% of anthropocentric global emissions; and 76% of the agricultural emissions are generated in the developing world. Landscape GHG accounting is an effective way to efficiently develop baseline emissions and appropriate mitigation approaches.Document
Women-led agroforestry and improved cookstoves in Honduras Field evaluation of farmer-led gender-transformative strategies for low emissions agricultureClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016This paper outlines the development of a women-led agroforestry and improved cookstoves project in Honduras. Analysis aims to contribute to learning for future projects, especially projects aiming to improve gender relations. The project intended to increase gender equity among smallholder farmers while reducing greenhouse gas emissions through agroforestry and fuel-efficient stoves.Document
Increasing resilience to droughts in Viet Nam: the role of forests, agroforestry, and climate smart agricultureClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The 2015-16 drought is the most severe that Viet Nam has experienced in at least 90 years. In the Central Highlands, South Central Coast, and Mekong Delta regions, 18 provinces have declared a state of emergency and 22 provinces have been seriously affected.Document
Setting partnership for climate change adaptation in the CCAFS Yatenga site, Burkina Faso: analysis of gaps and opportunitiesClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research’s (CGIAR) program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is aiming to address the complex and dynamic relationships between climate change, agricultural practices and food security. Its strategy for impact recognizes that good research may only be one of the multiple cornerstones of research for development.Document
Addressing environmental degradation and rural poverty through climate change adaptation: an evaluation of social learning in drought-affected districts of Southern IndiaClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016The overall goal of this paper is to apply the climate change and social learning monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework of the CGIAR’s Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) Policies and Institutions Flagship program to a climate change innovation platform.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, 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.
