CLIMATE CHANGE AND INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES

This project focuses on promoting sustainability and food security in Mapuche indigenous communities in rural areas of Argentina and Chile. It seeks to improve livestock production through climate-smart practices, drawing on previous experience to propose solutions tailored to these communities.In Argentina, it focuses on Río Negro and Neuquén, addressing challenges such as water scarcity, poor ...

Online Crop Management Support Platform

Agricultural systems globally and, especially, in Latin America require increasing crop production (60%) sustainably and considering the possible effects of climate change (CC). This has driven the need for sustainable intensification of agriculture. Farmers must produce more with the same amount of land and use fewer inputs. This transition is possible and necessary for food security. However, it...

One Welfare for resilience of livestock production systems

Increasing livestock production in a sustainable manner is a challenge for regional livestock production in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Together, Argentina, Chile and Colombia produce around 9.1 million tons of meat for global consumption, demonstrating the role of livestock in contributing to the local economy, food security, poverty reduction and sustainability. Livestock production s...

Platform for the transfer and efficient use of biologicals on Latin American farms

There is an urgent need for the implementation and development of more sustainable agricultural technologies. The use of bioinoculants (biofertilizers, biopesticides and biocontrollers) based on beneficial microbes which can promote plant growth and also plant protection is a promising technology that can be improved in efficacy, adoption and commercial registration for its use. This proposal foc...

Nitrogen Optimization

Food production has increased worldwide strongly in the last 20 years in response to population growth, with a significant impact on the countries of the Americas. This is owed to their agricultural potential, in terms of land area and climatic conditions suitable for agriculture. However, the maintenance of this productivity, as well as its future potential development, depends on the effects of ...

Sustainable management of irrigation and fertilization in quinoa

Adequate water and fertilization management is critical to optimizing yield within limitations of climate and resource availability. Though quinoa is recommended as an efficient crop in terms of water and nitrogen use, an evaluation of responses to these limiting factors at the crop physiology level shows significant gaps between actual yields and those limited by these factors. These gaps expose ...

Greater agricultural production with lower nitrous oxide emission

Agriculture produces 60% of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, one of the three main greenhouse gases responsible for global warming. Paradoxically, agriculture is extremely sensitive to climate change, a fact that generates the need to promote climate-smart technological innovation policies. In this multilateral technical cooperation project (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Uruguay), th...

Organic carbon sequestration in soils of Latin America and the Caribbean: identification of opportunities and quantification of their economic and environmental impact

"Carbon sequestration" is defined as the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and its storage in ecological sinks, such as soil organic matter. In this case, carbon sequestration will be quantified as changes in the soil organic carbon (SOC) pool. These changes can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land u...

Gene editing for improvement in plant and animal species

Crop and animal breeding is one of the constant challenges faced by the agricultural sector when trying to achieve increases in product yield and quality. The FAO proposes that, in order to meet nutritional demand during the next 32 years, the agricultural sector must produce between 50-70% more food, forage and biofuels than a decade ago. CRISPR-based gene editing (GE) is one of the most pro...
