Conservation agriculture in crop and livestock systems in drylands to enhance water use and soil fertility
The goal of the project is to sustainably increase production and enhance resilience of smallholder crop-livestock production systems to climate variability in countries in Near East, North Africa and Europe (NEN), and Latinn America and the Caribbean (LAC).
The main target groups directly reached by the project are 3,000 small crop-livestock producer households in NA (Tunisia and Algeria) and LAC (Nicaragua and Plurinational State of Bolivia) whose livelihoods are dependent upon the production of crops (barley- and wheat-based systems in NA and maize, wheat and Andean cereal-based systems in LAC) and livestock (sheep and goats in NA, and small ruminants, llamas, and cattle in LAC).
