Farmers on the front line: Perceptions, practices and discrepancies from the Aral Sea's Karakalpakstan and Khorezm regions

Décembre, 2023
Global

Undesirable changes in surface water and groundwater resources and land quality for biophysical and institutional reasons will further endanger the livelihoods of people in Central Asia. The farmers' understanding of these problems and the adaptation and solution strategies they opt for are the critical variables in devising relevant policies. Our findings captured significant disparities between farmer-perceived water shortages and officially documented water availability, as well as soil salinity discrepancies.

Executive summaries country profiles on food loss and waste - China, Colombia, Kenya and Vietnam

Décembre, 2023

In this document, we present an executive summary condensing the extensive Food Loss and Waste (FLW) country studies conducted by WFBR from 2022 to 2024, focusing on China, Colombia, Kenya, and Vietnam. Our synthesis of hotspot food products in these countries aims to guide the implementation of measures to reduce FLW. The quantifiable sums vary by product and chain stage. Concentrating efforts on food products and chain stages that significantly contribute to the earlier mentioned parameters can significantly enhance resource use efficiency.

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

Décembre, 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.

At COP28 countries recognized that unprecedented adverse climate impacts are increasingly threatening the resilience of agriculture and food systems and ability to produce and access food in the prevailing scenario of mounting hunger, malnutrition, and economic stresses.

Compounding stresses confront rural households in southern Malawi

Décembre, 2023
Malawi

Southern Malawi has historically been less food secure than the rest of the country, and the current lean season will be no different. The Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee expects 2,460,000 people in the Southern Region (29% of its population) to require humanitarian assistance at the peak of the lean season in February and March 2024, compared to 1,560,000 people in the Central Region (18% of its population) and 388,000 people in the Northern Region (15% of its population) (MVAC 2023).

Sri Lanka’s New Fertilizer Cash Grant (FCG) Scheme for paddy: What do participants and associates look and hope for?

Décembre, 2023
United States of America

Since independence, the Government of Sri Lanka has implemented various policies and initiatives to boost agricultural production. One of the enduring, costly, and politically sensitive measures aimed at promoting paddy farming has been the fertilizer subsidy program which was initiated in 1962 and continued for over six decades. Since then, the subsidy policy has undergone many changes, including the introduction of the Fertilizer Cash Grant (FCG) Program in 2016.

Land Reform and Child Health in the Kyrgyz Republic

Décembre, 2023
Kyrgyzstan

Can the establishment of private property rights to land improve child health and nutrition outcomes? We exploit a natural experiment in the Kyrgyz Republic following the collapse of socialism, whereby the government rapidly liquidated state and collective farms containing 75 percent of agricultural land and distributed it to individuals, providing 99-year transferable use rights. We use household surveys collected before, during, and after the privatization reform and spatial variation in its timing to identify its health and nutrition impacts.
