Satellite tool to strengthen capacities for monitoring, reporting and verification of methane emissions in Latin American ecosystems.

Given the importance of quantifying methane (CH4) emissions from rice paddies in national inventories and the increasing investment in mitigation technologies, there is significant value in developing verification technologies that can be applied at regional or national scales. It is currently possible to monitor CH4 content using satellite sensors. An example of such a sensor is the Sentinel-5 P...

Biointensive Cultive for Rural Families in the Dry Corridor

The Central American Dry Corridor is one of most vulnerable regions 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 between 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 unstable fo...

Strengthening Water Resources Management of Banana Communities: Greater Resilience to Climate Variability.

Agriculture uses about 70% of available water, which can generate conflicts with other users if availability is limited and seasonal. The consortium formed by UNAN-León Nicaragua, IDIAF of the Dominican Republic, banana and coffee producers, Bioversity International, the CGIAR Humidtropics Program and the French consultancy Lisode (Lien Social et Décision), convened farmers and other actors into...

Promote the Resilience of Production Systems to Reduce the Vulnerability of Small Farmers Families through the Revaluation of the Genus Lupinus Neglected Crops

The high Andes of Bolivia and Ecuador, and the Araucania in Southern Chile are highly vulnerable to climate change, show high poverty incidence, and have few economic opportunities. Legumes of the genus Lupinus show high adaptation capacity to adverse weather and soil conditions. In Bolivia and Ecuador the bitter Lupinus (Lupinus mutabilis) prevail, while in Chile, both bitter and sweet (L. albus,...

Grow More with Less: Adaptation, Validation and Promotion of Intensive Rice Farming System (SICA) in the Americas as a Response to Climate Change

Rice is a staple food in LAC where per capita consumption is 30 kg / year and demand exceeds production. The yields, costs and profitability depend on agro-climatic and technological factors, innovation in the crop is a must. The SRI project, executed by IICA in the Dominican Republic and Colombia, analyzed the productive efficiency, use of resources and the impact of SRI on GHG emissions. The pro...

Platform to Consolidate Apiculture as a Tool for Development in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Beekeeping can be a powerful development tool for small family farmers in Latin America. Lack of technology adapted to tropical and subtropical environments, and poor adaptation to changing context conditions limit the competitiveness of production chains. This is exacerbated by the intensification of agricultural production, deforestation and climate change. On the other hand, awareness of the ro...
