    Dry zone of Sri Lanka - Climate-smart intensification of upland and lowland crop production systems 2022
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This guide explores the climate-smart intensification of upland and lowland crop production systems in the dry-zone of Sri Lanka and provides technical guidance to achieve the productive objectives of selected strategic crops (as deemed relevant by the Government of Sri Lanka). The first edition focuses on maize and groundnut upland production systems and on rice lowland production. It provides a quick reference for information on crop production and soil management, including crop varieties, nutritional requirements and field equipment. As climate change will result in wider and more severe occurrences of plant pests, the guide relies on integrated pest management practices adapted to climate change. Optimizing the production of these crops calls for the diversification of crop systems using intercrops and cover crops. Additionally, sustainable mechanization is regarded as an essential agricultural production input to optimize labour and land productivity for the sustainable and profitable development of the agriculture sector. Therefore, the guide describes the innovative equipment needed for the sustainable optimization of crop production. To ensure coherent guidance and advice on sustainable farming practices, inputs and technologies, the guide has been developed in cooperation with all stakeholders working in the agriculture sector of Sri Lanka.

    This publication is intended to provide an overview of the successes reached by the implementation of Project GCP/GLO/534/ITA “International Alliance on Climate-Smart Agriculture”, funded by IMELS and implemented by FAO. The IMELS has fostered, within this project, knowledge sharing on CSA, the creation and the implementation of GACSA, and the development of initiatives to support developing countries in their international commitments for climate change and sustainable development in the field of agriculture and food security. The various activities and products described in this publication, show the successes of the project in supporting efforts of filling knowledge and implementation gaps, while developing assessments and tools for promotion and implementation of CSA actions. The Project successfully supported the development of several knowledge products such as technical briefs, compendia and e-learning courses, providing a solid base for strengthening capacity on CSA. Over the course of the Project, diverse consultative events (such as workshops, seminars and webinars), were organized, facilitating the knowledge exchange amongst experts, researchers and practitioners. These served as a venue for debate and discussions on defining priority work areas and outputs, as well as to share experiences and lessons learned, providing space for partnerships between the various groups of stakeholders, aimed at building a strong knowledge community that may have a significant role in implementing CSA across countries and regions.

    Zambia policy brief
    Achieving greater productivity and efficiency of households
    2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In Zambia, limited knowledge on climate-smart agricultural practices and poor access to sustainable mechanization are barriers for farmers to invest in agriculture. This policy brief explores ways to achieve greater efficiency and productivity of households through climate-smart agricultural practices in Zambia. With targeted agronomic practices, farmers can increase their production and income in a climate-smart way.
