CRP 1.1 was presented at the 4th Fund Council Meeting in April 2011. CRP1.1 targets the poor and highly vulnerable populations of the dry areas. It aims to develop technology, policy and institutional innovations to improve livelihoods, using an integrated systems approach. The program focuses on four strategic research themes (SRTs ) which cut across five focus regions. This CRP was approved with conditions at the meeting and subsequently received unconditional approval of inception phase & conditional approval of overall program & budget on Nov. 9, 2011.

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

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.

Climate change is a hazard to the food security of a growing world population since it affects agriculture and likewise, agriculture and natural resource management affect the climate system. The relationships between all these factors including polices, political conditions, economical management and pest and diseases, and how they interact are not currently well-understood, nor are the advantages and disadvantages of different responses to climate change.

Bhutan is least developed, mountainous and landlocked country in the eastern Himalayan range with a population of over 600,000. However its population and ecosystems are vulnerable to climate change. Despite a high level of environmental protection and awareness, Bhutan has become a victim of the global impacts of climate change caused by emissions in other countries. There is little historical climate data available in Bhutan; current records date back only to 1994. Consequently, the future climate scenario for Bhutan is uncertain.

This report summarizes the proceedings of the workshop “Scaling Up Climate
Services for Farmers in Africa and South Asia,” held in Saly, Senegal on December
10-12, 2012. The workshop brought together more than 100 experts from 30 countries
and roughly 50 institutions to grapple with the challenge of supporting vulnerable
farming communities through the production, communication, delivery and evaluation
of effective agrometeorological information and advisory services; and to identify
practical actions to address those challenges at scale.

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.

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
