- DocumentCentre For Non-Traditional Security Studies, 2016Food systems are climate and weather dependent; heat stress and changes in rainfall patterns and relative humidity are likely to regulate crop yields. Elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) are likely to directly and indirectly bring new challenges to the stability and sustainability of global food production including rice.DocumentSouth African Institute of International Affairs, 2017The spread of invasive plant species has serious consequences for Africa. Toxic weeds and harmful shrubs significantly shrink rangelands and lower the productivity of major grain foods such as maize (in some instances by up to 45%). Toxic weeds suppress the growth of staple crops and take over fields that could otherwise be used for agriculture.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2015Ongoing investments in agriculture will not deliver for Africa until the destabilising nature of crop pest events, especially shock outbreak events, are addressed. As a result of climate change, the prevalence of crop pests will change and the frequency of shock pest events will increase, putting agricultural systems at risk.DocumentResearch and Information System for Developing Countries, 2016India-Africa seed sector has promises for improving trade with various African nations.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2015Agriculture faces and will continue to face multiple challenges. Most notably, the need to meet food demand for a rapidly growing and urbanising population under increasingly variable and warmer climates.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, 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
Benefits and costs of nitrogen fertilizer management for climate change mitigation: focus on India and MexicoClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016This report contributes to the project “Financing Low Emissions Agriculture,” led by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). The project aims to analyze financial options and gather empirical evidence to build business cases for supporting transitions to low emissions agriculture in developing countries.Document
Benefits and costs of climate change mitigation technologies in paddy rice: focus on Bangladesh and VietnamClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Existing evidence and expert opinion indicate that AWD is very promising in terms of its potential to increase farmers’ yields and profits and GHG reduction potential in Bangladesh and Vietnam.DocumentClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Awareness of climatic information relevant for future decisions through climatic forecasts is not enough to support farmer’s decision-making. It is necessary to look for agricultural management alternatives that allow farmers to adapt to climatic conditions and implement efficient and sustainable management systems, within a framework of effective communication with farmers.
