T5: Introduction / Framing discussion

  1. 1. Near East & North Africa Land and Water Days T5: Rainfed agriculture Financing climate smart agriculture projects Introduction / Framing discussion Mohammed Karrou, ICARDA 17 December, 2013 Amman, Jordan
  2. 2. Challenges in Rainfed areas
  3. 3. How to increase agricultural productivity and livelihoods ? • Increase climate resilience of farmer and pastoral commmunities in regions of high rainfall variability to attract investments opportunities  This will be achieved through sterngthening institutional and technical capacity for weather forcasting/early warning and drought/CC adaptation and mitigation
  4. 4. Objectives of the workshop • To discuss how to manage increasing uncertainty and risks in predominantly rainfed systems; • To explore options for innovating risk management approaches and financing for increasing the resilience
  5. 5. Key questions to be discussed •What are the policies and the institutional components that are needed to encourage climate-smart rainfed agriculture? •How can public-private partnerships established to advance successful supplemental irrigation modality for rainfed agriculture? •How can motivate countries in the NENA region to endorse/adopt climate-smart rainfed agriculture? •What are the conditions/factors that would govern strategies for financing climate smart agriculture within the region? •How similar, or different, are the conditions/factors that would govern strategies for financing climate smart agriculture within the region?
  6. 6. Case studies • Morocco case study: Supplemental irrigation ; • MENA case study: Water productivity enhancement; • Iran case study: Improving rainwater productivity with supplemental irrigation at the farm level; • Egypt case study: Sustainable in Northern coastal zone of Egypt.
