    There are many options for enhancing food production from fish in managed aquatic systems.The most appropriate technology, however, will vary from place to place, and the conditions under which one technology is prefered over another are still not well defined.

    This report explores evidence and insights from five case studies that have made significant recent progress in addressing the challenge of insuring poor smallholder farmers and pastoralists in the developing world. In India, national index insurance programmes have reached over 30 million farmers through a mandatory link with agricultural credit and strong government support. In East Africa (Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania), the Agriculture and Climate Risk Enterprise (ACRE) has recently scaled to reach nearly 200,000 farmers, bundling index insurance with agricultural credit and farm inputs.

    This working paper reviews the experiences of the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) with 14 “small

    grants for impact” that were contracted in early 2006 and operated for periods of 12 to 18 months. For a total

    investment of under US$1 million – less than the equivalent of a typical 3-5 year CPWF research for development

    project in Phase 1, the small grant projects made significant contributions to identifying water and food technology

    for specific end users (thus showing the potential of CPWF research in general); to better understanding of

    This meta-synthesis of national climate change adaptation plans, policies and processes spans twelve countries at various stages of adaptation planning and implementation, in three priority CCAFS regions: West Africa (Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Se?negal), East Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda) and South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal).

    The Nile basin experiences wide spread poverty, lack of food and land and water

    degradation. Because poverty is linked to access to water for crop, fish and

    livestock based livelihoods, improving access to water and increasing agricultural

    water productivity can potentially contribute substantially to poverty reduction.

    The major goal of the Nile Basin Focal project is to identify high potential

    investments that reduce poverty yet reverse trends in land and water

    degradation. This is done through the implementation of six interlinked work

    IN response to an on-line survey, 76 project leaders and staff gave CPWF Phase 1 a

    generally favorable review. Respondents came from 68 CPWF projects in 45 countries on

    three continents. The survey sought to help learn what went well in Phase 1, what did not

    go so well and can be improved in Phase 2.

    Nearly three-quarters of respondents felt that they had achieved different research results,

    outcomes and impacts as a result of participation in the CPWF than otherwise possible from

    Using a 9-country dataset from sub-Saharan Africa, and integrating quantitative household-level analyses with qualitative work, the paper shows that gender relations affect agricultural practices and adaptation. The women farmers in our sample control less land than men, the land they control is often of poorer quality, and their tenure is insecure. Women, more than men, are dependent on internal village groups, as opposed to organizations operating at regional or national levels.

    This paper analyses gender differences in awareness and adoption of climate-smart agricultural (CSA) practices. It examines what factors are associated with the likelihood of adoption of a wide range of CSA practices for 376 women and 375 men in two different areas of Kenya. This information is aimed at improving the targeting and design of interventions that are trying to achieve greater and more equitable agricultural development in East Africa and elsewhere.
