Innovation and intensification for the adaptation to climate change of extensive family farming

By the year 2050, the agriculture sector has the challenge to increase production by 60% to feed the world. In Latin America, arid and semiarid regions (where familiar agriculture producer’s main income is extensive livestock breeding) are highly susceptible to climate change, environmental frailty and high levels of rural poverty. In these regions, research and innovation have the challenge to ...

More Rice with Less Emissions and Lower Water Consumption

Family growers (less than 10 hectares) in Colombia, Chile and Peru, whose livelihoods are based on rice production currently face a variety of challenges, one of the most pressing is the increase in climate variability and the consequent decrease in water availability during certain stages of the crop. On the other hand, the conventional practice of continuous flooding during cultivation results i...

Implementation of an early warning system for sustainable preventive management of potato late blight (Phytophthora infestans), as an adaptation measure against the variability of climate change in Latin America

Potato is a major crop in Latin America and is the main food in small farming, it is native to America as well as the causal agent of Late Blight (LB), P. infestans. Today, LB is considered a re-emerging disease in this crop, due to pathogen variability and climate instability that favors its presence and dispersion, with a high incidence and severity. Farmers, therefore, use pesticides excessivel...

Strengthening Regional Networks on Climate Technologies for the Agricultural Sector in Latin America and the Caribbean

Climate change will affect large areas of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), mainly due to rising temperatures, variations in rainfall intensity and frequency, which will have an effect on productivity and the appearance of new pests and diseases. The most affected would be family farmers, who are the majority. On the other hand, it is estimated that in the next 30 years, the demand for food w...

Technological Innovations to Build Resilient Livelihoods in the Dry Corridor Peasant Families

Lately, the Central American region has been affected by the consequences of global warming, manifesting itself with the greatest impact in the dry corridor of Nicaragua and Honduras, where cyclical droughts and rain regimes with characteristics very similar to the El Niño phenomenon occur. These climatic conditions have affected the levels of productivity and environmental and social sustainabil...

FONTAGRO - PROADAPT Articulation: Building Resilience in the Gran Chaco Americano

The Gran Chaco Americano represents the second largest forest region in Latin America after the Amazon jungle and is shared between Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and a small part of Brazil. The climatic vulnerability studies of the Gran Chaco foresee significant impacts in the next three decades, particularly due to the greater risk of droughts and floods according to the different areas and the in...

Traditional Varietal Seeds Offering Centers: A Model for Strengthening Informal Seed System and Increase Competitiveness of Family Agriculture

In Latin America, 80-90 % of producers belong to the Family Agriculture (FA) sector. This group occupies between 14 to 70 % of the agricultural area of the countries of Latin America and contributes 27-67 % to agricultural GDP. For some species of economic importance, between 50 to 90 % of crop production is carried out on the basis of traditional seeds through self-production or through transacti...

Innovation Platform for Sustainability of Family Livestock Systems in Uruguay and Argentina

The family livestock systems, that base meat production in the natural field, constitute the majority of the cattle farmers and rural population of Uruguay and Entre Ríos (Argentina). The high levels of animal load and/or the absence of spatial-temporal management cause overgrazing and poor spatial distribution, which, in interaction with the climatic variation, contribute to explain low levels o...

Biointensive Cultive for Rural Families in the Dry Corridor

The Central American Dry Corridor is one of the regions with the greatest vulnerability to the effects of climate change worldwide, which has already meant longer dry periods that intensify when the El Niño phenomenon is present, reducing rainfall by 40% and 60%, as has happened during 2014 and 2015. All this translates into high levels of food insecurity in rural areas caused by insufficient and...
