    The present technical study provides the results and a summary of the most important lessons learned from implementation of a series of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices in the rice supply chains of Gagnoa in Côte d’Ivoire. The aim of the CSA practices was to enhance the adaptive capacity of the rice sector against climate change, as erratic rainfall patterns and droughts events have, historically, significantly impacted production. This study relies on data collected at farm and processing levels during two field missions to two pilot sites in August 2017 and September 2018 under the project “Contribution à l’atteinte des objectifs liés au changement climatique et à la sécurité alimentaire via l’agriculture intelligente face au climat en Côte d’Ivoire – cas de la filière riz”. This project is a technical cooperation project implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) from 2016 and 2018. The study provides a series of recommendations for policymakers, including incentives for the development of a modern bioenergy sector in Côte d’Ivoire which are still nascent.

    Terminal Report - Improving the Political and Istitutional Environment for the Development of Inland Fisheries Co-management Systems in Burkina Faso, Mali, Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana
    PILOT PROJECT 1

    Also available in:

    Small-scale fresh-water fisheries in West Africa developed significantly following the construction of several hydro-electric dams on the major rivers. In Ghana, the huge Akossombo dam, and the associated Lake Volta, covering 9,344 km² (4% of the national territory), was filled in 1964. In Côte d’Ivoire, several hydro-electric dams have been built : Kossou in 1971 gave rise to a 900 km² lake. In 1980, Mali built the Sélingué dam which flooded a 409 km² area. Finally, Burkina Faso const ructed two dams in 1988 and 1992, giving rise to Lakes Kompienga (210 km²) and Bagré (250 km²) respectively. The construction of these dams weakened the social and economic fabric of the riparian communities, causing large-scale displacement and resettlement on new sites, and the destruction of plantations, forests and goods. The main aim of the dams is to produce electricity. However, an irrigated rice and market garden crop production programme has benefited from Lakes Sélingué and Bagré. The fishing activities, which developed later, radically changed the ethnosociological configuration of the lake areas. SFLP

    Improving biodiversity conservation and strengthening livelihoods in Ghana-Côte D’ivoire Border Area - GCP/RAF/447/GFF 2019
    Also available in:

    A network of forest reserves and shelterbelts in southeastern Côte d’Ivoire and southwestern Ghana exists, currently serving as a priority landscape that provides the habitat for a number of scattered elephant populations and other endemic or threatened species. As human activities expand and the process of habitat fragmentation accelerates, these animals are severely threatened and face increasing risk of extinction, as they become further isolated from each other. The identified area is an important biodiversity hotspot with an increasing population, in which people engage in subsistence agriculture and depend heavily on bush meat. Human-wildlife conflict has also been on the rise in the area, with little action taken to address the problem. In this context, the project aimed to establish a viable and sustainable Trans-frontier Conservation Area, linking forest reserves and protected areas in and around Bia in Ghana and Diambarakro in Côte d’Ivoire.
