CGIAR collaborates with the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology to host the “Consultation workshop: Deep diving into the Agritech Innovation Ecosystem in Egypt”

Dezembro, 2023
Egypt

On 7 February 2024 at the InterContinental Cairo Semiramis, CGIAR Centers – Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, ICARDA, IWMI, IFPRI, and supported by the CGIAR Accelerate for Impact Platform (A4IP) – in collaboration with the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology of Egypt (ASRT) and under the auspices of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Egypt (MOHESR) hosted the "Consultation Workshop: Deep Diving into the Agri-tech Innovation Ecosystem in Egypt".

Satellite-based Tracking of Agricultural Adaptation Progress in Sub-Saharan Africa

Dezembro, 2023
Global

Lack of systematic tools and approaches for measuring climate change adaptation limits the measurement of progress toward the adaptation goals of the Paris Agreement. To this end, we piloted a new approach, the Biomass Climate Adaptation Index (Biomass CAI), for measuring agricultural adaptation progress in Ethiopia across multiple scales using satellite remote sensing data. The Biomass CAI can monitor agri-biomass productivity associated with adaptation interventions remotely and facilitate more tailored precision adaptation.

“It doesn’t matter at all—we are family”: Titling and joint property rights in Myanmar

Dezembro, 2023
Myanmar

Many policy makers and academics striving for more gender equality consider joint property rights as preferable over sole rights, since the latter often discriminate against women. Several governments in low-, middle- and high-income countries have therefore imposed joint rights through modifications of statutory law or mandatory joint property registration.

Towards sustainable food crop production: Drivers of shift from crop production to mining activities in Ghana's arable lands

Dezembro, 2023
Ghana

This study contributes to the observed reduction of arable lands discourse by examining the shift in land use patterns as well as factors influencing farmers' shift from crop production to mining activities. To achieve this, we employed a combination of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and Cragg's Double Hurdle Econometric Model as analytical tools. Our approach integrates an econometric model of land use with GIS simulations that predict the spatial pattern of land-use change.

Human adaptation to climate change in the context of forests: a systematic review

Dezembro, 2023
Global

We assessed how people adapt to climate change in the context of forests through a systematic review of the international empirical research literature. We found that drought, precipitation variability, extreme precipitation and flooding, and extreme heat were the climatic stressors to which responses were most frequently documented. Individuals and households received the most research attention, followed by national government, civil society, and local government. Europe and North America were the geographic foci of more research than other regions.

Scaling in Context – Towards responsible scaling in land governance interventions

Reports & Research
Setembro, 2023
Global

LAND-at-scale (LAS) is a land governance support program for developing countries from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, which was launched in 2019. The objective of the program is to directly strengthen essential land governance components for men, women and youth that have the potential to contribute to structural, just, sustainable and inclusive change at scale in lower- and middle-income countries/regions/landscapes.

Fair Transitions and the Politics of Land

Conference Papers & Reports
Setembro, 2023
Global

Questions about how land is governed and controlled in the context of multiple crises are key to debates about fair transitions. The energy transition, net-zero ambitions, nature protection, and food system transformation all involve claims on land, water, and forests. How these claims are framed, analysed, and governed, how access to land is organised, and who gets a seat at the table to discuss key decisions are questions of urgent concern from both a fair transitions perspective and a land governance perspective.

Improved Land Reforms To The Benefit Of Women´S Access To Land To Foster And Support Social Norm Change, A Case Study Of Western Area Rural District And Bombali District In Sierra Leone

Dezembro, 2022
Sierra Leone

It is critical to have land policies that facilitate access to and effective control of land and other natural resources to achieve inclusive growth and eradicate poverty. It is well known that discrimination in land rights occurs globally, both in formal and customary settings. The reason for this is that land rights are either strong or weak and are held by a variety of groups of people.

Spatial Analysis Of Land Disputes In The Ashanti Region

Dezembro, 2022
Norway

Context and Background: Land is an important resource for human survival as well as that of other living organisms. Despite its importance, there are many problems that come with its management. There are increasing controversies and disputes over the ownership, access, and use of land. This is due to the increase in land demand, owing to factors such as population growth, urbanization, and food security. Land disputes in the Ashanti Region have drastically escalated recently as a result of these factors.

Planning And Conservation Of Urban Riparian Reserves: Spatiotemporal Evidence From Earth Observation

Dezembro, 2022
Kenya
Norway

Context and backgroundAlthough a growing body of literature maintains that riparian reserves are infrequently conserved, a knowledge gap exists on how their status may be assessed through a triangulation of spatial and temporal approaches.Goal and Objectives:This study, therefore, sought to investigate through geospatial analysis the extent to which riparian reserves in Kenya were conserved as provided for under the legislation.
