    Project
    Case study - Estimating Ecosystems Services at a Territorial Scale – Options for Policy Making, Planning, and Monitoring in the Kagera Basin 2007
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Various land assessment options are available and suitable to be applied at a landscape scale for planning and management of natural resources and ecosystems so that climate smart agriculture (CSA) interventions can be fed in. The Transboundary Agro-ecosystem Management Project for the Kagera River Basin (Kagera TAMP), funded by GEF and implemented by FAO, has the goal to adopt an integrated ecosystems approach for the management of land resources in the basin (shared by Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Tanzania). This is expected to generate local, national and global benefits including: restoration of degraded lands, carbon sequestration and climate change adaptation, agro-biodiversity conservation and sustainable use and improved agricultural production leading to increased food security and improved rural livelihoods and indirectly protect of international waters. In this framework, an assessment and mapping of the land degradation and sustainable land management bright and hotspots is under finalization and is being used to inform the project intervention strategy, identify best practices in the region, and guide effective and responsive Sustainable Land Management (SLM) intervention. The evaluation of SLM results is expected to advise policy making, planning and budgetary allocations, through supporting the analysis of major barriers to land resources conservation/management, and serving as baseline for future integrated landscape management approaches.

    Book (stand-alone)
    Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in practice in the Kagera basin - lessons learned for scaling up at landscape level 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This book compiles a set of 26 papers that present the direct, practical experiences and results of a large number of local practitioners and experts that supported the Transboundary agro-ecosystem management project of the Kagera river basin (Kagera TAMP) during the period 2010-2015. The book has been compiled by the Land and Water Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to reflect the wide range of experiences, approaches and tools that were used for promo ting participatory diagnostics, adaptive management and adoption of sustainable land and agro-ecosystem management (SLaM) practices from farm to watershed / landscape scale. The project was supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Governments of the four countries that share the transboundary basin - Burundi, Rwanda, the United Republic of Tanzania and Uganda and project partners. It is hoped that the lessons learned are considered and taken up by the Governments and the TerrAfric a partnership for scaling up and mainstreaming SLaM as part of the wider set of lessons learned from the 36 projects in 26 countries under the Terrafrica Strategic Investment programme, including Kagera TAMP.

    Presentation
    A Synoptic View of Kagera Tamp During 5 Years of Project Implementation (2010 -2015)
    Webinar 2: Methods and Tools to Support the Implementation of Ecosystem based Adaptation in Agricultural Sectors
    2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Transboundary Agro-ecosystem Management Project for the Kagera River Basin (Kagera TAMP) aimed to adopt an integrated ecosystems approach for the management of land resources in the Kagera Basin that would generate local, national and global benefits including the: restoration of degraded lands, carbon sequestration and climate change adaptation and mitigation, protection of international waters, agro-biodiversity conservation and sustainable use and improved agricultural production, leading to increased food security and improved rural livelihoods. The presentation will walk us through the methodology for building the evidence base to support choosing the right ecosystem-based approaches. Further to this, the presentation will share experiences in setting up monitoring systems throughout the project to further develop the evidence base for the use of these approaches to support adaptation in the Kagera River Basin.
