    Poster presentation. Book of abstracts. 2015 annual conference of European Geosciences Union (EGU).
    The participation of stakeholders and the integration of scientific and local knowledge in the assessment of environmental
    problems and potential solutions have been increasingly demanded by international institutions. Participatory
    assessment has the potential to engender social learning among all stakeholders, including scientists,
    which then has the potential to increase collaboration and the probability for adoption of good practices. Using

    From 2009 to 2014 a nationwide effort was made to document, collect, conserve, and characterize wheat landraces grown by Turkish farmers. Spike samples were collected from more than 1600 farmers from 59 provinces, planted as single-spike progenies, and classified into species, subspecies, and botanical varieties (or morphotypes). Altogether, 95 morphotypes were identified representing three species and six subspecies: einkorn wheat (Triticum monococcum L.), emmer wheat [T. turgidum subsp. dicoccon (Schrank) Thell.], cone wheat (T. turgidum subsp. turgidum), durum wheat [T. turgidum subsp.

    Eastern Africa, Kenya

    Drylands cover over 40% of the earth's surface and support over 2 billion people, globally (Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, 2005). In East Africa alone, over 250 million people depend on drylands for their livelihoods (De Leeuw et al., 2014) and in Kenya, 70% of the total land area is classified as arid- and semi-arid (Batjes, 2004). Over the last several decades, an increasing and more sedentary human population has resulted in more pressure on these lands, and an expansion of agricultural production into marginal dryland areas that were traditionally rangelands.

    This Template is designed for standardized description of Sustainable Livestock Management Options by Context (SLiM OxC), in which sustainable livestock management option and its social, economic and ecological contexts are systematically characterized. The SLiM OxC is adaptively developed based on the Template of Sustainable Land Management Options by Context (SLM OxC) of the GeOC tool (GeOC: https://geoc.mel.cgiar.org/, SLM OxC: https://mel.cgiar.org/slm/index).

    Ethiopia, Eastern Africa

    A system dynamics approach was used to determine the sustainable stocking rate of the Menz sheep population in the Ethiopian highland. A model was developed to simulate stocking rate based on communal grazing land. The model is weather and resource (feed supply) driven. Pasture growth and dynamics was modeled using rainfall and temperature data. Herd dynamics was based on age groups of male and female animals from birth to herd exit, taking production and reproduction parameters into account.

    The Climate Change Adaptation and Agribusiness Support Programme (CASP) of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Nigeria (FMARD) aims at mainstreaming climate change adaptation measures in the savannah belt of Northern Nigeria, through a landscape rehabilitation approach focused on sustainable land management. Demonstration sites will be established across seven Nigerian states (Borno, Yobe, Jigawa, Katsina, Zamfara, Kebbi, Sokoto).

    This report focuses on the analysis of livelihood type-specific behaviors regarding household
    choices in land use and management practices. This is a contribution to the overarching
    framework of “Integrated Systems Analysis and Modeling in Aral Sea Region” activity within
    Dryland System CRP. The report is based on further analysis of baseline data collected within
    “Innovation Platform” activity, surveyed and reported in 2015 (Rudenko 2015). Preliminary
    analysis of household survey data including description of the study area and the content of
