    Soil management in the Altillanura of Colombia’s Eastern Plains The strategies used for adequate soil management for the Altillanura (high plains with flat topography) of Colombia’s Eastern Plains are reviewed to establish modern, efficient, and sustainable livestock systems in this region. Advances in technology development within the technical and scientific cooperation agreement signed between Colombia’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MADR) and CIAT, as well as those of the Center’s Soils Project and several national institutions co-partners in the agreement.

    Niger

    Au Niger, l’Initiative Grande Muraille Verte Sahélo-Sahélienne vise, à l’horizon 2035, le développement des communautés locales à travers une approche novatrice et inclusive consistant à mettre en synergie les actions de lutte contre la désertification, de conservation de la biodiversité, de lutte contre les changements climatiques et d’appui aux systèmes de production agro-sylvo-pastorale. La finalité étant de reverdir le Niger et de contribuer à une sécurité alimentaire durable des populations et du cheptel.

    This Regulation of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) implements provisions of the Community Rights Law of 2009 with Respect to Forest Lands ("Community Rights Law"), and determines the rules, guidelines and procedures for the establishment of authorized forest communities and to access, manage, use and the benefits of forest resources within the Republic of Liberia, and participation by communities in the reforestation, rehabilitation and conservation of forest and wildlife resources in Liberia.

    Informed livestock sector policy development and priority setting is heavily dependent on a good understanding of livestock production systems. In a collaborative effort between the Food and Agriculture Organization and the International Livestock Research Institute, stock has been taken of where we have come from in agricultural systems classification and mapping; the current state of the art; and the directions in which research and data collection efforts need to take in the future.

    Given limited resources, adaptation strategies must target those populations most vulnerable to global change and equip those unable to adapt—generally the poorest—with the tools and incentives that will enable them to do so. ASARECA has recently carried out a study to enhance the understanding of climate change in the 10 ASARECA member countries. This report profiles the available climate change–related datasets and their accessibility and procurement details in the 10 ASARECA member countries.

    Esta cita subraya un fenómeno que los agricultures, particularmente los de las áreas secas marginadas, llevan años experimentando: la amenaza de la desertificación y el cambio climático para sus vidas. El secuestro de carbono, sin embargo, tiene una doble utilidad para revertir esta amenaza: en primer lugar, el calentamiento global puede ser mitigado significativamente mediante la eliminación del dióxido de carbono de la atmósfera y su secuestro en el suelo; en segundo lugar, el aumento de carbono en el suelo tiene un gran valor como activo para la producción de alimento.

    Ce message pessimiste met en évidence un phénomène que les agriculteurs des zones arides marginales connaissent depuis des années, là où la désertification et le changement climatique sont une menace concrète. La séquestration du carbone peut cependant être un moyen de lutte efficace : d’une part, elle permet d'atténuer de façon significative le réchauffement planétaire en transférant dans les sols le CO2 atmosphérique ; d'autre part, le carbone ainsi stocké dans le sol constitue une ressource importante des processus de production alimentaire.

    The message in this short, yet stark sentence highlights a phenomenon that farmers, particularly in marginalized dryland areas, have been experiencing for years – the threat of desertification and climate change to their lives. Carbon sequestration, however, serves a dual purpose to remedy this threat. Firstly, global warming can be mitigated significantly by removing atmospheric carbon dioxide and sequestering it in soil. Secondly, increased carbon in the soil has great value as a food-producing asset.

    The climate change (CC) caused by increase in atmospheric concentration of CO2 and other Greenhouse Gases (GHGs), can be addressed through adaptation and mitigation strategies. Adaptation consists of strategies which minimize vulnerability to CC. The objective is to increase resilience of the ecosystems and communities through adoption of specific sustainable land management (SLM) techniques that have adaptive benefits. On the other hand, the goal of mitigation strategies is to enhance soil and vegetation (land) sinks for absorbing atmospheric CO2 and to minimize net emissions.
