Learning Event No. 1, Session 2: Scherr - The “land sharing or land sparing” conundrum. ARDD2012 Rio

  1. 1. The “land sharing or land sparing”conundrum:Southern Agricultural GrowthCorridor of Tanzania (SAGCOT)ARDD Learning Event 1Rio + 20Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 18, 2012
  2. 2. SAGCOT strategy● Implementing Kilimo Kwanza in the southern corridor● 350,000 hectares of new agriculture● $3.4 billion of investment● 1.3M tons/year of new grain production● 3,500 tons/year of new red meat production
  3. 3. SAGCOT geography
  4. 4. SAGCOT cluster concept
  5. 5. Key issues for agricultural productivity,sustainability, land, and water in SAGCOT Forests, Wildlife, and Protected Areas
  6. 6. Land-sharing, land-sparing options inSAGCOT● Land-sparing:  Sustainable crop intensification to reduce village land-clearing  Sust. livestock intensification with rotational grazing (not pastoralists)  Increased irrigation efficiency  Protection of water sources for irrigation● Land-sharing ● Re-open permeable wildlife corridors through farmlands through by modifying production practices and adding habitat features ● REDD+ forest buffer zone management with farming communities ● Agroforestry-- vegetative cover for hydrological and habitat benefits ● Irrigation infrastructure designed for multi-use (social, econ, environ.) ● Co-management of pastoral herds and wildlife
  7. 7. Conclusions1) Real life strategies to ensure full range of products and services from landscapes will require both land-sparing and land-sharing2) Major agricultural investment programs need to design land-sparing and land-sharing as part of collaborative spatial planning3) Agricultural Green Growth (AGG) framework must incorporate eco-friendly practices/business, coordination to achieve ecosystem goals, stakeholder forums, and market and policy incentives
