Transitioning shifting cultivation to resilient farming systems in South and Southeast Asia

30 June 2021 | 11:00 – 12:00 CEST

Millions of people in upland areas of South and Southeast Asia still depend on shifting cultivation for their livelihoods, nutrition and food security. Transition away from shifting cultivation remains a fundamental imperative of sustainable agricultural development in those areas - being a practice often associated with deforestation and environmental degradation.

Join ICIMOD and IFAD for the launch of a Resource Book and policy briefs for transitioning shifting cultivation to resilient farming systems. The book and briefs provide an overview on the impacts of settled agricultural systems on food availability, ecosystem services and security of tenure, outlining approaches that can help avoid the negative fallout of transition.
