Understanding capacities to scale innovations for sustainable development: a learning journey of scaling partnerships in three parts of Africa

Dezembro, 2022
Global

Finding out how to scale innovations successfully is high on the agendas of researchers, practitioners and policy makers involved in agricultural development. New approaches and methodologies seek to better address related complexities, but none of them include a systematic perspective on the role of capacity in (partnerships for) scaling innovations. We posit that this has left an important topic insufficiently addressed in relation to partnerships for scaling innovations.

Challenges and opportunities for achieving Sustainable Development Goals through restoration of Indonesia’s mangroves

Dezembro, 2022
Global

Indonesia, the most mangrove-rich nation in the world, has proposed the most globally ambitious mangrove rehabilitation target (600,000 ha) of any nation, to be achieved by 2024 to support multiple Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 1–3, 6, 13 and 14). Yet, mangrove restoration and rehabilitation across the world have often suffered low success rates and been applied at small scales. Here, we identify 193,367 ha (estimated costs at US$0.29–1.74 billion) that have the potential to align with the national mangrove rehabilitation programme.

Climate-smart and resilient rice production practices in the MFS

Dezembro, 2022
Global

The rising concerns of over-exploitation of groundwater resources, increasing cost of inputs and cultivation, timely availability of labor and energy, degradation of soil health, and climate change prevail in major agri-food systems in Bangladesh. Thus, reversing the unsustainable way of practicing agriculture to climate-smart agriculture would be key to sustainable agricultural development and productivity.

Digital innovation in citizen science to enhance water quality monitoring in developing countries

Dezembro, 2022
Global

Freshwater systems are disproportionately adversely affected by the ongoing, global environmental crisis. The effective and efficient water resource conservation and management necessary to mitigate the crisis requires monitoring data, especially on water quality. This is recognized by Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, particularly indicator 6.3.2., which requires all UN member states to measure and report the ‘proportion of water bodies with good ambient water quality’.

Why the data gaps in Indian aquaculture need to be addressed to contribute to its efficient and sustainable development

Dezembro, 2022
Malaysia

Identification of the data gaps can help determine the appropriate methods to improve aquaculture farm operation, production and market access, as well as community capacity. The data gaps can be addressed by
creating a national aquaculture database in collaboration with various stakeholders including government bodies, research institutes, private entities, and aquaculture farmers.

Integrated simulation framework for the impacts of large dams: Example of the GERD

Dezembro, 2022
United States of America

Efficient water resources management is essential for the sustainable development of nations, and large dams are an important tool for achieving this endeavor. Here, we present an integrated approach to simulating the impacts of large dams, integrating river systems infrastructure, hydrodynamic, and economywide models. We apply the framework to examine the biophysical, GDP, and distributional impacts of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) on Sudan.

Gender and food systems in Kenya: A case study of the poultry value chain in eastern Kenya

Dezembro, 2022
Kenya

Women are key stakeholders in sustainable and resilient food systems, given their roles as primary food producers and household caretakers (Visser and Wangu 2021). Understanding how gendered roles affect food security and women’s well-being is essential for pursuing sustainable development (Angel-Urdinola and Wodon 2010; Doss, Meinzen-Dick, and Quisumbing 2018; Meinzen-Dick et al. 2019).

Agricultural productivity in Kenya: 2000-2020

Dezembro, 2022
Kenya

Agriculture is key to economic growth and poverty reduction in Kenya as it plays a pivotal role in employment creation, food security, exports, and sustainable development. In 2019, it directly contributed 22.7 percent of GDP, accounted for 20.9 percent of total exports, and generated 43.3 percent of employment (Chapter 2). The sector is thus not only an important driver of Kenya’s economy but also the means of livelihood for many Kenyan people.

Production system and challenges of saline aquaculture in Punjab and Sindh provinces of Pakistan

Dezembro, 2022
Pakistan

Introduction: Lack of data about saline aquaculture in Pakistan has curtailed informed policy and investment decision making resulting in undervaluation of and underinvestment in the sector. Therefore, saline aquaculture in Pakistan is today an underdeveloped sector despite its potential as an alternative livelihood for the country's rural farmers.

The food systems countdown report 2023: The state of food systems worldwide

Dezembro, 2022
Global

Food systems are a foundation of human and planetary well-being and central to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Yet they also contribute to ill health, inequity, environmental degradation, and greenhouse gas emissions. These challenges demand urgent food systems transformation. Such a transformation requires understanding the status of food systems across their diverse functions.

Strategies for promoting Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) in the agribusiness sector in Kenya: experiences from the field

Dezembro, 2022
Kenya

This report aims to explore the intersection of gender and social inclusion, with a focus on the challenges and opportunities faced by women and youth in the agribusiness sector. It examines the ways in which gender norms and stereotypes shape social inclusion, and how exclusionary practices can perpetuate gender-based inequalities. The report draws on the gender analysis studies, baseline surveys and positive case study examples from diverse settings to highlight the key issues and strategies for promoting Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) in the agribusiness sector.

Mitigating and adapting to climate change through silvopasture

Dezembro, 2022
Global

Livestock production is at the center of adaptation to and mitigation of climate change. It also impacts the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A transition is thus needed for livestock systems to become more sustainable and climate resilient, with clear impacts on the SDGs. This presentation provides an overview of investment priorities for climate resilient and low emissions livestock systems. It also dives deep into trees and agroforestry (silvopasture) as one solution that can help address climate change across the world.
