    The overall objective of the CACILM2 Project is to scale up integrated natural resources management (INRM) in drought prone and salt affected agricultural production landscapes in the five Central Asian countries. This will be done through scaling up of sustainable management practices that minimize pressures and negative impacts on natural resources that reduce risks and vulnerability and, enhance capacity of rural communities to cope with or adapt to drought and salinity. For this presentation, a background of the CACILM1 project, it’s achieved experiences and how it led to the second phase will be presented. It will then discuss the importance, the effects and benefits of SLM (sustainable land management) and INRM best practices and their impacts on ecosystem services and production landscapes at wider scales in drylands and the chosen five Central Asian countries.

    Impact of shrimp farming on arable land and rehabilitation of resultant salt-affected soils/integrated soil management for sustainable use of salt-affected soils 2000

    The development of agricultural technologies and a better appreciation of the existing but under-utilised knowledge of resource management will be crucial in meeting the ecological needs and in achieving the anticipated food demands of the growing population in the future. The greatest challenge for the coming decades lies in the fact that the production environments are unstable and degrading. Land degradation is proceeding so fast that unless policies and approaches change, many countries will not be able to achieve sustainable agriculture in the foreseeable future. Soil salinization has been identified as a major process of land degradation. The greatest technical causes of decreasing production on many irrigated projects particularly in arid-semi-arid areas, or failure of large areas in rainfed agriculture, are waterlogging, salinization and sodication.

    Thematic 1: Farmers’ guidelines on soil and water management in salt-affected areas 2023

    The threats posed by salt-affected soils to global food security are dire. According to the recent Global salt-affected soils map, over 424 million hectares of topsoil (0–30 cm) and 833 million hectares of subsoil (30–100 cm) are currently salt-affected. This practical guide to soil and water management in salt-affected areas provides vital information to farmers dealing with salinity and sodicity issues on their farms and assists them in following suggested practices to mitigate or/and to adapt to these unfavourable conditions without compromising further losses in yields.
