This guide provides details on the history and pros and cons of four participatory diversity deployment methods, helping practitioners distinguish between the methods and choose one that best fits their objectives.
This variety catalogue of notified varieties and promising landraces of eight crops important for the high mountain agricultural zones of Nepal is an important tool for farmers and researchers concerned with agricultural production, food security and agrobiodiversity conservation.
Improved planning tools for interventions that target complex systems are urgently needed. This Decision Analysis Approach helps decision makers efficiently allocate resources to help policy decisions through a step-by-step guide.
Recent estimates show that one third of the world’s land and water resources are highly or moderately degraded. These guidelines for developing Soil Organic Carbon Baselines provide valuable insight for policymakers and researchers working to achieve land degradation neutrality.
Sub-Saharan Africa has more than 50 percent of the world’s potential for land cultivation. Yet, most of this land is in poor condition and unable to satisfy the needs of agricultural production. The Africa Soil Information Services project helps meet these needs with a gridded Soil Information System of Africa and soil nutrient maps.
Poor soil health is recognized as a major cause of decline in agricultural productivity in sub-Saharan Africa. This low cost soil and plant analysis technology works to improve management of natural resources through light photon based methods.
Soil erosion and land degradation are major causes of smallholder vulnerability, reducing crop productivity and increasing food security. This soil information system is an extensive compilation of up-to-date soil fertility data, providing soil fertility maps and fertilizer recommendations.
A business model approach to assessing the feasibility and encouraging investment in smallholder solar pump irrigation. In doing so, these proposed business model frameworks identify promising investment opportunities that can increase the sustainability of agricultural water management technologies.
By creating bunds and dykes on the edges of hydropower reservoirs, water can be retained in the draw down period to create artificial wetlands and fisheries, mitigating some potential negative impacts of hydropower development.
