Assessment of the use, intensity and adoption of Climate Information Services (CIS) and Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) technologies in Ghana.

Dezembro, 2022
Ghana

Building on the successes from previous projects such as CCAFS and addressing emerging issues, the World Bank supports the CGIAR to accelerate climate research in Africa. As a mode of implementation, AICCRA deployed several CIS-CSA technologies from an initial 22 prioritized to 5 for each of the 6 value chains in Ghana. Scaling options were through demo sites at both individual farmer and community-level farm accompanied by field days.

Anticipatory action in communities hosting refugees and internally displaced persons: an assessment of current approaches

Dezembro, 2022
Global

This paper is a global literature review of anticipatory action approaches in communities hosting forcibly displaced persons. Anticipatory action, or a set of actions taken to prevent or mitigate a potential disaster before acute impacts are felt, is an essential strategy to reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. However, due to the complexity and diversity of host community environments, it has proven challenging to incorporate this approach into these contexts.

Can we trust large language models to summarize food policy research papers and generate research briefs?

Dezembro, 2022
United States of America

Generative large language models (LLMs), while widely accessible and capable of simulating policy recommendations, pose challenges in the assessment of their accuracy. Users, including policy analysts and decision-makers, bear the responsibility of evaluating the outcomes from these models. A significant limitation of LLMs is their potential to overlook critical, context-specific factors. For example, in formulating food policies, it is vital to consider regional climate and environmental variables that influence water and resource availability.

An Assessment of Inclusion in the Governance of Bangladesh’s Agri-Food System to Face Climate Crisis

Dezembro, 2022
Global

This exploratory study relied on secondary data review relating to inclusive governance in agri-food systems, as well as an analysis of Bangladesh’s contemporary agriculture, food systems, climate change, conservation, and natural resource management policies and interventions. Based on the literature review, key practices/initiatives were mapped against an analytical framework consisting of seven dimensions of inclusive governance, namely representation, participation, capacity and skills, accessibility, financial resources, knowledge system, and innovation.

Ecosystem assessment of food, land, and water actors in the humanitarian, development, and peace nexus

Global

1.5 billion people live in fragility and conflict-affected settings (FCAS) and they face an increased risk of food insecurity and poverty trap. A systems approach in collaboration with innovators in FCAS is needed to produce practical and inclusive solutions that can improve the resilience of food, land, and water systems (FLWS).

Ethiopia

Enhancing African farming systems holistically, through interventions that introduce innovative practices, is crucial for ensuring ample food production and sustaining food security. Given the diverse nature of farming systems, validating these interventions in specific contexts becomes essential to optimize their effectiveness and adoption rates.

Accelerating Impacts of CGIAR Climate Research for Africa (AICCRA): Environment and Social Management Plan (ESMP) to guide the provision of Agro-processing mini grants in Senegal

Dezembro, 2022
Senegal

This Environment and Social Management Pan (ESMP) has been developed to clarify (i) the measures that will be taken during the implementation of project activities to eliminate or offset adverse E&S impacts, or to reduce them to acceptable levels; and (ii) actions needed to implement these measures during the implementation of the Accelerating Impact of CGIAR Climate Research for Africa (AICCRA) project activities in Senegal.

Introduction to Climate Information Services for Agriculture: Reference Guide

Dezembro, 2022
Global

The Accelerating Impacts of CGIAR Climate Research for Africa (AICCRA) project aims to enhance access to climate information services and validated climate-smart agriculture technologies in Africa, to help these countries strengthen the resilience of their agricultural sectors to the threat posed by climate change. Strengthening the capacity of next users, particularly agricultural extension and advisory service (EAS) providers who work to support farmers in Senegal and five other target countries, is crucial for achieving this goal.

Assessment of farmers’ willingness to pay for bundled climate insurance solutions in Sri Lanka

Dezembro, 2022
Sri Lanka

With the increasing frequency and intensity of climate-related disasters, several social protection and livelihood resilience tools have been tested to reduce agricultural risks. The findings of this study are based on the initial bundled climate insurance solutions pilot conducted in five districts in Sri Lanka (Anuradhapura, Vavuniya, Monaragala, Kurunegala and Ampara) in 2021 with the support of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

Integrity management in community-based water tenure in Kajiado County, Kenya

Dezembro, 2022
Kenya

Smallholder production systems in low-income countries suffer the most from the impacts of climate change but receive the least benefit from climate adaptation programs. This is due to governance structures that make it difficult for governments and organizations to effectively reach marginalized communities. Technical, financial, and institutional support is provided in vertical siloes, limiting coordination between national government departments and hindering integrated climate interventions.
