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. That can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land use, that...

Carbon Sequestration

Several global initiatives indicate that carbon sequestration (C) in soil organic matter dedicated to agriculture is a viable option to mitigate the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) and to increase the resilience of these systems to climate change. In particular, the '4 per mille Soils for Food Security and Climate' initiative launched at COP21 is aimed at increasing the global stock of C in the...

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...

Mechanisms and Climate Technology Transfer 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. 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...

Livestock and Climate Change: Applied Research and Knowledge

The objective of this project was to create a network on livestock and climate change to exchange information, standardize methodologies, provide mutual technical support and promote collaboration. The project was executed by FONTAGRO/TAS and contemplated the financing of networking and capacity building activities for Latin America and the Caribbean. This project consisted of 3 components. The fi...

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

During the last 20 years, food demand increments 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 national agr...

Innovation Platform to Improve Technology Adoption of Climate-Smart Agriculture by Farmers: Pilot in Honduras and Colombia

The project was implemented in Popayán, Colombia and in the Dry Corridor of Honduras with networks made up of NGOs, CIAT and farmers working together on improving adaptation to climate change. Practices and facilitation tools were tested, such as working with focus groups, simulation of the effect of innovations on food security, resilience and GHG emissions, and on-farm testing of technologies. ...

Improving Animal Production Systems with Emphasis on Dairy Farming in the Andean Region within the Context of Climate Change

This project aimed to improve methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions quantification techniques. Furthermore, it intended to generate strategies to help mitigate these emissions in dual-purpose livestock in the Andean Region. This project was structured in five components. The first one consisted of biophysical and socioeconomic characterization of dairy production sites. In a second one, ...

Developing Competitive Livestock Production Systems with Low Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in Central America

Farms with lower intensification only have grazing systems and generate more CH4 emissions than higher intensified farms. In contrast, farms with greater intensification systems have feeding strategies such as supplementing lactating cows with commercial concentrates, minerals, and silages. Furthermore, they tend to implement more management strategies such as pasture management plans, soil analys...

Climate Change and Livestock: Quantification and Mitigation Options for Methane and Nitrous Oxide Emissions of Bovine Origin under Grazing Conditions

Global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is a major environmental concern. Countries that have ratified the Kyoto Protocol are required to submitt periodic reports to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) about their GHG emissions and climate change adaptation and mitigation programs. The countries involved in the project carry out their emission inventories based on ...
