  • Managing the risk associated with climate variability is integral to a comprehensive strategy for adapting agriculture and food systems to a changing climate. Since many of the projected impacts of climate change are amplifications of the substantial challenges that climate variability already imposes on agriculture, better managing the risk associated with climate variability provides an immediate opportunity to build resilience to future climate change
  • how to achieve climate change mitigation in ways that benefit poor farmers and examines the trade-offs that mitigation may involve, especially with the intensification of agriculture.Two windows of opportunity exist for pro-poor mitigation. The first is the design of low net emissions agricultural development pathways. 3.1: Evaluate lowest carbon footprints for: food production, adaptation, energy production, sustainable intensification, poverty alleviation + Assess impacts of current policies + Develop coherent vision to guide agric dvlptThe second is increasing the capacity of the poor (including men and women) to benefit from carbon financing, including carbon markets. Working on developing on farm technological options for mitigation and landscape implications 3.3 : Test technological feasibility of smallholder mitigation on farms developing incentives and institutional arrangements 3.2: Test feasibility of carbon market for smallholders + Assess potential non-market options + Assess impacts on marginalized groups and women
  • 4.1: Linking Knowledge to ACTIONRegional scenarios + Vulnerability assessments + Approaches to decision making informed by good science + Approaches to benefit vulnerable, disadvantaged groups 4.2 : Data and Tools for analysis and planning: Integrated assessment framework, toolkits, and databases to assess CC impacts + Baselines, data generation & collation, scoping studies, and tool development 4.3: Refining Frameworks for Policy ANALYSIS Assess CC impacts at global & regional levels on: producers, consumers, natural resources, and international transactions + Analyze likely effects of scientific adap. and mitig. options, national policies

  • We wanted to include a gender dimension in this study in order to ensure that any recommendations would be inclusive (in terms of gender and other social divisions). Specifically, we include women farmers (both as household heads and within male headed households) so that their needs and perspectives are taken into account; otherwise there may be an unintentional bias towards male farmers.The gender analysis focuses on three components…The findings of the gender, the socio-economic and the bio-physical analysis are often context specificExamples: Borana, Ethiopia is different than other E. Africa—traditionally pastoralNyando, Kenya—two distinct agro-ecological zones within the CCAFS siteNot only gender differences but other socio-economic and bio-physical differences

  • “Tortillas ontheRoaster” trata de predecir cambios específicos a nivel local a los que se encuentran expuestos los sistemas de producción de maíz y frijol, cambios a los que las productores pueden responder y actuar con medidas concretas de adaptación.Para alcanzar los objetivos principales se siguen un camino metodológico que comienza con la "reducción de escala" de los modelos climáticos globales a nivel local seguido de la predicción del crecimiento de las plantas de maíz y frijol y la producción bajo condiciones climáticas futuras. Se hace esto para los cuatro países en los que puede asignar todos los cambios en la producción de maíz y frijol e identificar la ubicación con diferentes grados de impacto. Con base en estos lugares podemos cuantificar las consecuencias socio-económicas para el sustento de la población respectiva y la cadena de valor. En base a estos análisis, podemos desarrollar una adaptación adecuada y también algunas estrategias de mitigación para la región.El mapa constituye el producto más importante del proyecto TOR de términos de referencia hasta el momento. La información condensada en este mapa es muy útil para un número de diferentes actores y tomadores de decisiones, las agencias de desarrollo y de la comunidad de donantes. Enrojo se encuentran los hot-spots con un mayor impacto a la producción con escenarios del clima futuro: mas que 50% disminuye el rendinimiento de rijol en estas zonas. Las naranjas son zonas que tienen una perdida del rendimiento pero un potencial para adaptación. Los puntos de presión (verde) se merecen la atención a través de las autoridades respectivas por que son zonas donde aumenta la productividad al futuro y son zonas de bosque en el presente.
  • 1. Conceptual approach: ES-based BSM do not only seek for improving the delivery of ESS but also seek for a transfer of resources as a form of rewarding for water-related ecosystem services that are already being provided satisfactorily. (classic PES definition only accepts schemes where there is additionality in the provision of the service)
  • Currently working with:BiNGOs (Big international NGOS) in 5 countries in development (outcome, outcome, outcome) projects worth over US$ 20m USDIn discussions with World Bank and MADR to use the approach to assess 370+ Productive Alliances in Colombia with a specific focus on the effectiveness of business linkage approaches to poverty reduction for families graduating from conditional cash transfer programs and living in post conflict situations.In discussions with Unilever for use in 3 pilots to help reach their goal of incorporating 500,000 small producers into their supply chains by 2020.In discussions with SABMiller for use in Zambia to assess local sourcing models for barley, maize, cassava with possible extension to 7 additional countries

    24. 24. Lushoto (Tanzania)Weather reasons for adapting Changes in land use and crop management a) More erratic rainfall - introduction of new, higher yielding crop varieties of maize, beans b) ↘ overall rainfall (88%) and tomatoes c) ↗ amount of rainfall (39%) d) more frequent droughts (71%) - switching to disease resistant varieties of cassava, bananas and e) earlier start of the rains 77%) maize f) Later start of rains (65%)Drivers• Availability of high yielding varietiesmore resistant to pest and diseases• More profitable market prices.• Less productive land
    25. 25. Gender Dimensions• Why consider gender? o To develop appropriate adaptation strategies for both male and female farmers (to ensure inclusion of female farmers)• Findings (Context Specific) o Gender division of labor o Decision-making o Control and Access of Resources
    26. 26. Gender Division of LaborOverall, men and women tend to report thatthey themselves do most of the tasks Women’s Reporting Men’s Reporting Men Women Boys Girls• Examples: – Spraying was reported as a men’s task, and – Weeding mainly as a women’s task
    27. 27. Decision-Making• Across all 4 sites: – Women report that men make most decisions – Men report more decisions are taken jointly – Example: Nyando, Kenya Women’s Reporting Men’s Reporting Men Women Together
