Multipurpose silvopastoral systems and family farming in Peru and Colombia

In the Peruvian and Colombian Amazon, most of the rural population is engaged in agriculture, which includes cattle farming as an activity mainly of a family nature. It is notable that livestock farming has generated low sustainability in land use, mainly due to deforestation of forests for pasture establishment. Livestock is responsible for 80% of deforestation in the Amazon region and is respons...

FONTAGRO Seed Fund: Resilience against Adverse Weather Conditions

Family farming (FA) systems located in marginal areas are frequently more vulnerable to the negative effects of the climate and its changes. The sustainable intensification (IS) of these systems should be associated with their socio-ecological diversification, and tend to increase and / or stabilize the productivity of their resources, their profitability, maintain the ecological and cultural inte...

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...

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...

Sustainable Intensification in Dairy

Within human activities, agricultural activity is the one that consumes most of the available fresh water. Particularly, the dairy uses large volumes of water, directly and indirectly; therefore, it is important to estimate the use of water as an indicator of the long-term sustainability of the dairy. Medium-term projections show that global demand for dairy products will be greater than the growt...

Pilot project: Creating basis for a Regional Early Warning System Coffee Rust (EWS)

From a socioeconomic point of view, coffee in Central America represents one of the most important items in the agricultural sector. In the region there are around 958,000 hectares of coffee plantations, with an approximate population of 2 million people, if we consider the members of producer families and other actors in the coffee value chain, who participate in the processing, exportation, roas...

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...
