APR Workshop 2010-Integrating Rural Development, Climate Change-Sheila Mwanundu

  1. 1. Why integrate rural development, climate change, and sustainable natural resources management? Sheila Mwanundu, IFAD 2 November 2010 ©IFAD/G.M.B. Akash
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Green Revolution more than doubled agricultural output in just three decades. Still, there is growing evidence that such gains were inherently unsustainable, based on “brown” technology, particularly inorganic fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides, irrigation, and mechanisation. </li></ul>©IFAD/Paolo Marchetti
  3. 3. Agriculture-new era <ul><li>Climate change multiplies the risks farmers face. </li></ul><ul><li>Land degradation, water scarcity and pollution, and biodiversity loss further deplete the natural resources on which rural communities depend. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing market volatility and consumer demand- on land add to existing vulnerabilities. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Some 2 billion people live on an estimated 525 million small farms. 87 per cent of these farms are in Asia. Already suffering from high rates of absolute poverty and undernourishment, the rural poor are most at risks in the face of global scarcity trends. </li></ul>IFAD/GMB Akash 2008
  5. 5. Lack of participation and political representation Inappropriate policies Lack of access to markets and credit Lack of organisation and social capital Lack of access to knowledge and technology Lack of access to natural assets Natural disasters, conflict and crises Rural poverty
  6. 6. <ul><li>To continue empowering small farmers and the rural poor to overcome poverty, IFAD and its partners must integrate rural development, climate change and natural resources management. </li></ul>©IFAD/Qilai Shen
