    Reducing Food Loss and Improving Agricultural Ecology Based on Pest Rodent Management in Guizhou - TCP/CPR/3608 2020
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In recent years, Yuqing County and Sandu County inGuizhou Province have experienced heavy pest rodentdamage, leading to severe crop production losses andrestricting the development of local agriculture. Theoccurrence of rat-borne diseases also directly threatenshuman health. In Yuqing and Sandu Counties, 120 000people live in poverty in mountainous areas and thepresence of pest rodents, combined with low agriculturalproduction, severely impedes poverty reduction.A long-term management strategy to reduce food loss andprotect agricultural ecology by improved pest rodentmanagement is a high priority for the province, not onlyto protect the livelihoods of poor ethnic minority farmersbut also to safeguard agricultural ecology and biodiversityin the area. The aim of the project was to reduce food loss,improve crop production and the livelihoods of farmers,and achieve a more prosperous and sustainable ruraleconomy in the poverty-stricken mountainous areas inYuqing County and Sandu County in Guizhou Provinceby introducing improved environmental-friendly rodentmanagement technologies and practices.

    Support to the Promotion of Conservation Agriculture and Integrated Pest Management for Sustained Soil Fertility and Productivity - TCP/GHA/3701 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The degradation of soils, which are the foundation of agrifood systems, is alarming in sub Saharan Africa, which is already facing continued population growth that increases pressure on scarce natural resources Soil in Ghana is becoming low in nutrients, fragile and exposed to adverse natural and environmental pressures In addition, unsustainable farming systems on marginal lands and the overuse of chemical fertilizers and misuse of pesticides have led to declining soil fertility and contamination of the natural environment, rendering soils unproductive and negatively affecting livelihoods Smallholder agriculture, especially in the northern part of the country, is characterized by natural production with low access to productive assets, information and technical skills, low level of implementation of modern technologies and mechanization, small farm sizes, lack of productive infrastructures and rural finance institutions Moreover, subsistence farmers are the most exposed to climate change and price volatility Conservation Agriculture ( has proven to be a viable approach that contributes to improved and sustainable productivity, environmental protection and climate change adaptation It aims to improve soil productivity and conservation and includes practices that combine integrated management of soil, water and agricultural resources to boost food production Despite the potential benefits, implementation of CA, Integrated Pest Management ( and other Climate Smart Agriculture ( practices by smallholders remains low Previous experience with these types of interventions in Ghana showed a lack of evidence based interventions, know how on appropriate technologies to use and access to appropriate and locally designed tools and affordable equipment Smallholder households were identified as slow adopters of CA There is also the need to introduce the benefits of IPM to farmers to minimize the use of chemicals in foods As such, this project aimed to improve production systems and strengthen resilient livelihoods by using a climate smart approach as well as dealing with issues affecting agriculture management of natural resources The project targeted smallholder food crop farm families who are the most vulnerable with limited access to markets and credit The issues to be addressed were the degradation of natural resources due to inappropriate farming practices and population growth, improper use of agrochemicals in farming, a lack of organizational capacity to deal with climate change impacts at the community leveI inadequate access to resources and negligible or no access to information on good agricultural practices and climate change impacts.
