Agrosilvopastoral systems, an alternative for ecological intensification and sustainability of livestock farming in Caquetá
The main objective of the Sustainable Amazonian Landscapes project (SAL) is to provide national environmental authorities and local farmers in Colombia and Peru science-based evidence that improves their capacity to mitigate and adapt to climate change, while improving the environmental services and socioeconomic benefits for the farmers.
Daniel Jiménez argues that data science is about a collaboration among experts from various areas.
As part of the Food Resilience through Root and Tuber Crops in Upland and Coastal Communities of the Asia-Pacific (FoodSTART+) project, farmers in Quang Binh province learned all things sweetpotato – from agronomy to sustainable soil management to post-harvest processing, even including making pesticide from chili. FoodSTART+ aims to enhance food resilience among poor households by introducing root and tuber crops innovations.

From observation to action: How Terra-i’s near-real time monitoring of forest cover loss will support conservation efforts in Southeast Asia
The Cambodian government is looking into the possibility of Terra-i as a forest cover change monitoring tool in the country. Terra-i is the only tool that is global in scope and yet can be calibrated according to a country’s specific context. A near-real time monitoring system, Terra-i is able to support immediate ground action by providing information to forest rangers and provincial authorities on the state of the forest, as well as on looming encroachment.
Rice crop improvement needs to adjust for harsher droughts, a new study says.
