Innovations for a climate crisis
Thursday, 2021/02/25 | 08:20:28

For 50 years, CGIAR innovations have helped to reduce poverty and hunger worldwide ...

Climate-Smart Villages and Valleys

Smallholder farmers – their food supplies and their livelihoods – are at risk in the face of global climate change. Unsustainable farming practices are also part of the problem, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. How can smallholders adopt better practices, and also adapt to a changing climate?

Climate-Smart Villages

Several solutions are now being trialed in Climate-Smart Villages across AfricaAsia, and Latin America, led by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). Established in high-risk areas that are likely to suffer most under a changing climate, the villages function as real-life laboratories for cutting-edge climate-smart technologies, information services, development and adaptation plans, and supportive institutions and policies.

 

In addition to farm practices, farmers in Climate-Smart Villages test new services, such as tailored weather forecasts to plan planting, harvesting and other activities on the farm. Advisories and weather forecasts are delivered by mobile phones, which are also used to enable farmers to buy index-based insurance that gives them a measure of protection in the event of extreme weather. 

 

In the first phase from 2011-2014, as many as 18 Climate-Smart Villages were successfully established across West and East Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and Latin America. By 2017, a total of 35 were actively managed by CCAFS and partners, covering 20 countries. Today, the original Climate-Smart Villages are active in 12 countries, while thousands more have been scaled up via public and private sector involvement throughout South and Southeast Asia, potentially benefiting millions of farmers.
