This discussion paper presents the main issues to be considered in an adaptation roadmap for agriculture, with a particular focus on developing countries.
Evan Girvetz, who has been leading CIAT’s climate-smart profiling project, talks about the biggest takeaways from and the future of the initiative.
At the Africa Climate Smart Agriculture Summit, CIAT is rolling out climate-smart agriculture (CSA) profiles for four additional African countries. This brings the total CSA country profiles focused on Africa to 11.
At an event held on 27 March 2018 at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) Campus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the recently developed Ethiopia Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) Country Profile was officially shared with national stakeholders and partners.
Due to fluctuating weather patterns and climate variability, Honduran farmers need climate tools that will help project future seasonal patterns.
For International Women’s Day, CIAT presents a series of opinion pieces where some of its female researchers share their views and stories about how they are empowering women and men in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
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.
A research carried out in the Animal Nutrition Laboratories of CIAT studied forages that improve animal productivity and reduce methane emissions in two municipalities in central Nicaragua.
The process of getting better practices to more people – “scaling up” innovations to make agriculture more climate-smart – has baffled many development practitioners. Some approaches work on a small scale, but suddenly on a larger scale, everything changes. These are the challenges that the authors of these 9 briefs just published set out to address.
Climate-smart agriculture profiles: A peek into 2050 and what can be done for Asia’s most at-risk countries
The latest CSA profiles offer recommendations on how farmers in Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal can adapt to and mitigate climate change.
About Climate-Smart Agriculture
Agriculture accounts for over a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions, in some countries even more. But as well as being a big contributor to climate change, agriculture can also be a major part of the solution. CIAT is helping shape a farming future that is cleaner, greener, more productive and more resilient.
