An eye-opening new research paper indicates that the global agricultural sector is going to have to do more to reduce non-CO2 emissions by one gigaton per year by 2030 in order to meet the new climate agreement's plan to limit warming by 2°C in 2100.
Senator Loren Legarda, chair of the Senate Committees on Finance and Climate Change, signified interest to support the adoption of the Climate-Smart Village approach in the country during her visit at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). Sen. Legarda said that the CSV approach and the farming technologies and practices developed by IRRI need to be utilized to improve resilience among farming communities in the context of climate change. She also underscores the importance of collaborative initiatives particularly in building the capacities of local government units and farming communities to improve agricultural systems for better livelihood opportunities.
The article presents CCAFS Climate-Smart Villages (CSVs) in Karnal, India. Taraori is one of the 27 CSVs in Karnal and has emerged as a model CSV with farmers who are progressive and receptive of new technologies, helped by the efforts of a farmers' group in the village.
Climate change is expected to have a significant impact on smallholder farming in the Ghanaian cocoa belt. As a response, a new project implemented by CCAFS and partners focuses on, first, understanding how climate change will affect the cocoa sector in Ghana, and second, mainstreaming climate-smart agriculture in cocoa-based farming systems.
To transform Rwanda’s farming communities and national economy through improved climate risk management, CIAT and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society are implementing a project that will provide a million farmers with timely access to essential climate information services.
In a new research published in Global Change Biology, CCAFS and partners calculated, for the first time, the extent to which agricultural emissions must reduce to meet the new climate agreement to limit warming to 2C in 2100.
"The large gap between desired mitigation outcomes and plausible outcomes indicates that more transformative technical and policy options will be needed to reduce non-CO2 emissions or that mitigation from other sources will be needed to offset them," according to a new study by CCAFS and partners.
"Countries want to take action on agriculture, but the options currently on offer won't make the dent in emissions needed to meet the global targets agreed to in Paris," says to Lini Wollenberg, CCAFS low emissions development research leader.
CCAFS and partners published a new study about what actions countries need to take for mitigation in agriculture.
Increasing extreme weather events caused by climate change affects agricultural production. Therefore, it is important to have projections for the future so that farmers can better adapt to the changing climate. The article mentions the CCAFS Regional Agricultural Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT) model that will help bring powerful advance information tools to farmers and food security decision makers, better allowing them to manage within-season climate risk to agriculture.
Vietnam is facing a food security crisis due to extreme drought. Leocadio Sebastian, CCAFS Southeast Asia Program Leader explained: “El Niño contributed to the drought by reducing rains, and this may be exacerbated by climate change.”
Countries in Southeast Asia are facing their worst drought in decades. While long-term planning for climate change adaptation would be crucial, Dr Leocadio Sebastian, CCAFS Southeast Asia program leader says that it is unfortunately uncommon, as governments "tend to favour relief intervention" instead.
