The Climate-Resilient Post-Harvest and Agribusiness Support Project pioneered the Participatory Integrated Climate Services for Agriculture (PICSA) model which combines weather data with farmers’ knowledge to enhance their decision-making.
The Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) piloted talking maps in Bolivia. This innovative tool brings together science and traditional community knowledge to identify key issues and adaptation priorities, giving Indigenous Peoples, women and youth a voice in decision-making.
In the pursuit of sustainable rural development, the LPDP-II project empowered rural people, enabling them to establish Pasture User Unions and create Community Livestock Pasture Management Plans to address the degradation of pasture resources.
This paper defines gender sensitive as recognizing different roles of women, men, boys and girls, inequalities and gender power dynamics and trying to mitigate negative impacts in programme/action design.
This fourth edition of IFAD’s Climate Action Report does not restrict itself to reviewing the progress and results of the past year, but also situates these results within the larger context of IFAD's 11th Replenishment.
This paper presents key results and lessons learned on NbS, mainly from IFAD’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) portfolio, to inspire future programmes to reach greater scale in supporting inclusive rural transformation.
IFAD’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) is the largest multi-donor global fund specifically dedicated to enabling smallholder farmers to adapt and build their resilience to climate change.
This study reviews evidence on initiatives that invest in climate-resilient infrastructure to support smallholder farmer organizations and agribusinesses in the micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME) category and, ultimately, to foster inclusive and sustainable agricultural value chains. Case studies from the BRACED and ASAP programmes across sub-Saharan Africa are presented.
