World Bank, Washington, DC

Following the April 13th release of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report on Mitigation, including Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU), this event will provided an opportunity to listen to IPCC authors summarize their findings and for all participants to join in a dialog with practitioners and financiers to discuss actionable steps for mitigation in the agricultural sector.

  1. 1. GLOBAL FOOD NEEDS WITH LOWER EMISSIONS: IPCC REPORT FINDINGS ON CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION IN AGRICULTURE A DIALOG AMONG SCIENTISTS, PRACTITIONERS AND FINANCIERS, APRIL 16, 2014 NEETA HOODA CARBON FINANCE UNIT CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY AND FINANCE DEPARTMENT
  2. 2. Kenya Sustainable Agricultural Land Management Project: Proof of Concept • Via Agroforestry promotes sustainable agricultural land management practices on approximately 45,000 ha in the Nyanza and Western provinces of Kenya. • 20,304 smallholder farmers trained to date in sustainable agricultural practices. • 19,000 hectares with increased crop yields and farm productivity to date. • First-ever agricultural land management project to issue carbon credits; 24,788 tons of CO2 issued • $65,000 in carbon revenue for Kenyan farmers to date. • First methodology developed for carbon accounting from agricultural land management.
  3. 3. Project Components FED VS&LASALM SALM: Sustainable Agricultural Land use Management, Farmer aggregation FED: Farm Enterprise Development VS&LA: Village Savings and Loan Associations Extension
  4. 4. Win-win-win scenario Market Access?
  5. 5. Zambia: Smallholder Support EXAMPLE: COMACO IN ZAMBIA - COMACO is stand-alone entity that coordinates land use activities for over 40,000 farmers in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley - COMACO also provides technical training to smallholders on improved land use practices - COMACO coordinates smallholders into trading units - Commodities are traded along the value chain via regional rural depots and 6 Conservation Trading Centers, where they are processed and packaged - COMACO partnering with private sectors such as Cargill, Dunavant - Multiple non-carbon benefits: - food security - economic development - biodiversity
  6. 6. Lead farmer training: mobile schools Producer group training: Better Life Book, Farm Talk radio program Producer Group Cooperative training Advanced learning centres Field days, demonstration plots Seed growers, recoveries, storage District advisory committees supporting conservation compliance Farm input shops Consolidation of product processing Full use of by-products into value-added products Outsourcing trucks, seasonal workforce Increased warehouse storage Batch processing and shrinkage controls Automated and scaled-up processing Regional export market penetration Increased marketing COMACO: The Process, The “Deal”

  8. 8. Key learning points • Small farmers can be our best stewards of the land if given the right incentives • Poverty and hunger pre-empt all efforts to achieve conservation • Market forces drive land management practices, consumers drive markets • If consumers appreciate the conservation role of farmers through the products they buy, incentives for conservation can work in the market place • No one entity can achieve conservation success alone – partnerships are the key • Africa is smothered with first world brands – need African brands and investment ideas that keep Africa safe from environmental loss
  9. 9. Jurisdictional Approach to Landscape Management • BioCarbon Fund is helping to scale up integrated land use management (agriculture, REDD+, energy, tourism) linked to local livelihoods in the Luangwa Valley, through results based finance • Program could support sustainable commodity supply of maize, groundnuts and possibly cotton • Aligning public-private partnerships-strong support from private sector entities that would be an asset in implementation
