    Ethiopia, Africa, Eastern Africa

    The village baseline of Denbela Saden village in the CCAFS benchmark site of Yabello in Ethiopia took place from 10th to 12th August 2011. Focus group discussions were conducted separately for men and women.

    Mozambique, Africa, Southern Africa

    It is widely acknowledged that goats in developing countries fulfill multiple functions and can contribute to improved livelihoods of smallholders. The multi-functionality of goats in rural Mozambique however is fairly unknown. The objective of the paper is therefore to identify and create a deeper understanding of the multiple functions goats currently play in the smallholders sector in Mozambique. The paper takes a sociological approach by advancing the thinking that the functions of goats are socially and culturally constructed, and not ‘given’.

    Africa, Eastern Africa

    This report presents 4 scenarios for the future of food security, agriculture, livelihoods and environments in East Africa. These scenarios were developed by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in collaboration with a wide range of regional stakeholders. The report discusses the theory and development process

    Rwanda, Africa, Eastern Africa

    Rwanda’s variable and changing climate is an increasingly serious challenge to the country’s

    agricultural sector and farming population. Climate information services are emerging as a

    means to support farmers to manage risk and provide an opportunity to build the resilience of

    agriculture to climate at all time scales. Climate services include historical, monitored and

    forecast information, and value-added information products such pest and disease risk

    warnings, crop yield forecasts, or management advisories. The new Rwanda Climate Services

    ? The Rwanda Dairy Competitiveness Program II

    (RDCP) was estimated to have resulted in a

    strong decrease in the GHG emissions intensity

    of milk production, defined as the GHG

    emissions per unit (liter) of milk produced.

    Extensive cattle production systems reduced

    their GHG emission intensity by an estimated -

    4.11 tCO2e per 1000 l of milk (-60%), while

    intensive production systems reduced their

    intensity by an estimated -1.7 tCO2e/1000 l (-

    47%). The decrease in GHG emission intensity

    Kenya, Africa, Eastern Africa

    The agricultural development project Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Accelerated Growth (REGAL-AG) has promoted improved livestock management that resulted in a decrease in net emissions of 10%. Since emissions from livestock account for the majority of Kenya’s agricultural emissions (95%), reduction of emissions in the livestock sector has high potential impact.

    In Africa, where most agriculture is rainfed, crop growth is limited by water availability. Rainfall variability during a growing season generally translates into variability in crop production. While the seasonality of rainfall in the drier rangelands can play a significant role in productivity, rain-use efficiency (RUE)—the amount of biomass produced (in kilograms of dry matter per hectare) per millimeter of rainfall—also drives production.

    Pastoralist Areas Resilience Improvement

    through Market Expansion (PRIME) showed a

    notable decrease in emission intensity (GHG

    emissions per unit of meat or milk). PRIME

    enabled farmers to increase production

    significantly, between 24% and 96%, which led

    to a decrease in emission intensity ranging from

    -4% to -42%.

    ? Due to improvements in feed quantity, PRIME

    projected an increase in average animal weight

    for all livestock (8.3 million head), which resulted

    in an increase in GHG emissions by an
