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
Chanje Lavi Plantè in Haiti: Hillside soil conservation as a measure to increase yields and sequester carbon in HaitiClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Chanje Lavi Plantè is a three-year project in the Feed the Future (FTF) initiative. The project, implemented by Chemonics International, focuses its efforts in the Cul-de-Sac, Matheux, and lower Central Plateau areas of Haiti. The number of direct beneficiary smallholder farmers is 60,000 households, with a total of 90,000 households expected to benefit from improved income and nutrition.Document
The importance of reducing animal product consumption and wasted food in mitigating catastrophic climate changeJohn Hopkins University Press, 2015Globally about 30 percent of the food supply is never eaten. If all the world’s food losses and waste (wasted food) were represented as a country, it would be the third highest GHG emitter, after China and the United States. Additionally, food decomposing in landfills generates significant quantities of methane.Document
The challenges of climate change: testing climate smart agricultural solutions for improved food securityAustralian Centre for International Agricultural Research, 2016Climate change is likely to have far-reaching consequences for agriculture, natural resources and food security, demanding a response that integrates research, development and policy. Because of the disproportionate impact of climate change on the rural poor, priority investments should be directed towards poor agriculture, fish or forest dependent people whose livelihoods are most at risk.DocumentFocus on the Global South, 2015This report seeks to answer several questions on climate change, its causes, how it will affect people’s lives and environment and the importance of agroecology within this.Document
