Sustainable Intensification in Dairy

Agricultural activity consumes most available fresh water out of all human activities. In particular, dairy production uses large volumes of water, directly and indirectly. Therefore, it is important to estimate water use as an indicator of the long-term sustainability of dairy production. Medium-term projections show that global demand for dairy products will be greater than the growth in supply ...

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...

Community Micro Processing, Social Construction of Cocoa Quality from Biodiversity and Local Culture in Highly Vulnerable to Extreme Weather Events Regions

This project was developed with the purpose of strengthening the livelihoods of families dedicated to the production of cocoa in the Costa Rica-Panama bi-national basin of the Sixaola River, and with the goal of reducing the vulnerability of these producers and families to extreme hydrometereological events. The co-executing organizations (APPTA and COCABO) represent about 3000 producers, who gain...

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...

Climate Technology Transfer Mechanisms and Networks 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. Those most affected will be family farmers, who represent the majority of producers. On the other hand, it is estimated that in the next 30 years th...

Innovations in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) as a Tool for Improving Competitiveness of Family beekeepers

Internet-Communication-Technologies (ICTs) at the agricultural level have had exponential progress in recent years. At the agricultural production level, they are increasingly being used for batch mapping, determination of green index and biomass, determination of yields at the “micro-parcel” level, guaranteeing grain traceability and understanding aspects related to climate through weather st...

Basis for Generating an Integrated Adaptation Strategy for Farming Systems in Latin America

During the last 20 years, food demand increments have led to greater agricultural and livestock production in South America. However, climate change effects, mainly on small producers, can negatively affect their future development. In Chile, about 90% of livestock systems depend directly on rainfall intensity and frequency. In Argentina, the Pampean region, where the highest percentage of nationa...

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...
