The objectives of the workshop were to (i) share and exchange experiences and lessons on available methods and tools to identify and analyse trade-offs in agricultural systems (at different levels: from household to landscape, regional and global level), (ii) to discuss and explore how we can apply the lessons learned within and between the respective CRPs, (iii) to explore potential for synergies and collaboration between scientists and programs on trade-off analysis in agricultural systems, (iv) to discuss how results from trade-off analysis research can be translated to end-users to achi

Sustainable development of pastoral and agro-pastoral systems, dominated by collective and/or tribal ownership of rangelands, is a key issue for the West Asia and North Africa region. These two systems are located in arid and semi-arid areas and are increasingly threatened by desertification process. The policy responses to tackle this complexity have been a sectorial and fragmented, “top-down” approach, putting forward technical solutions and neglecting the social context.

Background: ‘Climate-smart agriculture’ (CSA)—agriculture and food systems that
sustainably increase food production, improve resilience (or adaptive capacity) of farming
systems, and mitigate climate change when possible—has quickly been integrated into the
global development agenda. However, the empirical evidence base for CSA has not been
assembled, complicating the transition from CSA concept to concrete actions, and
contributing to ideological disagreement among development practitioners. Thus, there is an

A number of studies have suggested that addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural
production, or ‘supply-side emissions’, will be insufficient to reduce agri-food sector GHG emissions to limit
the increase of global temperatures to well below 2o
C. Recent studies have also suggested that ‘demandside
measures’ related to food consumption, food value chains, and food loss and waste, will be necessary
to reduce emissions and may have a larger technical mitigation potential than supply-side measures.

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’.

This report is aimed at readers who seek to build economic evidence in support of the inclusion of actions on agriculture in climate change plans and programmes, particularly at the national level under the umbrella of nationally determined contributions (NDCs) to the December 2015 Paris Agreement, which aims to restrict a rise in global temperatures and manage risks.

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

This working paper examines the development of regional socioeconomic scenarios for West Africa’s development, agriculture, food security and climate impacts. We present four globally consistent regional scenarios framed and outlined by regional experts who crafted narratives and determined key drivers of change. Stakeholders identified the type of actors driving change and the timeline of strategic planning as the most uncertain and most relevant factors of change affecting food security, livelihoods and environments in the region.
