- 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.Document
Uptake and dissemination pathways for climate-smart agriculture technologies and practices in Lushoto, TanzaniaClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Smallholder farmers in East Africa need information and knowledge on appropriate climate- smart agriculture (CSA) technologies and practices, and institutional innovations in order to effectively adapt to climate change and cope with climate variability.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016With the concept climate-smart agriculture (CSA) being relatively new, there is a need to test and develop practical and systematic methodologies and approaches for documenting and evaluating CSA practices in the field. The implementation of CCAFS’ Climate-Smart Villages (CSV) involves identifying, assessing and selecting climate-smart farming practices.Document
Climate change reporting for rural broadcasters Engaging rural media for community mobilization on climate-smart agriculture in the PhilippinesClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016To kick off a pilot rural radio campaign on climate smart agriculture (CSA), three seminar workshops titled “Climate Change: iBroadkas Mo!”, for rural broadcasters in the Philippines were organized by the Philippine Federation of Rural Broadcasters (PFRB), with the support of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in Southeast Asia (CCAFS-SEA).Document
Synthesis report on experiences with ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reductionSecretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, 2016Policymakers are increasingly calling for an ecosystem-based approach to climate change adaptation (EbA), which “incorporates biodiversity and ecosystem services into an overall adaptation strategy to help people to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change”.OrganisationThe Convention was opened for signature on 5 June 1992 at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the Rio "Earth Summit").DocumentInternational Monetary Fund, 2016Small developing states are disproportionately vulnerable to natural disasters. On average, the annual cost of disasters for small states is nearly 2 percent of GDP—more than four times that for larger countries. This reflects a higher frequency of disasters, adjusted for land area, as well as greater vulnerability to severe disasters.DocumentDeutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH, 2013Tropical coastal areas are highly vulnerable to climate change. Coastal ecosystems can support the adaptation of both human and natural systems but only if they are sustainably managed. The conservation, restoration or sustainable management of ecosystems to provide ecosystem services that help people adapt to climate change is known as ‘ecosystem-based adaptation’ (EbA).
