    Promoting Sustainable Land Management and Climate-Friendly Agriculture in the Republic of Türkiye - GCP/TUR/055/GFF 2023

    Türkiye encounters several barriers to sustainable land and forest management practices. These are driven by minimal experience among key stakeholders, limited exposure to innovative low-carbon technologies and inadequate legal and institutional frameworks. The project aimed to overcome these barriers through three components that address these needs. The first component focused on rehabilitating degraded forest-and range-lands, producing soil organic carbon maps, certification of dry-land forests and establishing a biodiversity monitoring system. The second component aimed to promote climate-smart agriculture by developing models for conservation agriculture demonstrations, investing in bio-digesters and monitoring the adoption of climate-smart agricultural technologies. The third component focused on creating an enhanced enabling environment for sustainable land management by training 923 farmers to support the project goals, enhancing forest and agriculture policies and implementing a national monitoring program for climate change, biodiversity and sustainable land management. The project targeted government staff and decision-makers, farmers and civil society stakeholders involved in sustainable dryland management and dryland farmers, and was the first of its kind in Türkiye to bring together land degradation, biodiversity and climate change concerns to deliver integrated and synergistic solutions.

    Implemented by the FAO Subregional Office for Central Asia in Türkiye, the project contributed to improve the sustainability of agriculture and forest land use management in the Konya Closed Basin through low-carbon technologies and win-win benefits in land degradation, climate change and biodiversity conservation, while increasing farm profitability and forest productivity. Climate-friendly agriculture interventions and connected CO2 savings positively illustrated new approaches for sustainable land and natural resources management. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry was invited to create a comprehensive monitoring programme to systematically assess the Konya Closed Basin’s environmental state, and FAO continues to advocate for concrete policy measures to address the urgent environmental challenges.
