    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.

    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

    Through networking of partners by way of a consortium approach, the project has demonstrated that 50% of chemical fertilizers can be substituted with the locally-produced vermicompost that the farmers themselves make. In Madhya Pradesh 800 trials were conducted, and a 1000 in Rajasthan, during the post-rainy season, which demonstrated the productivity benefits that can be achieved by following the science-led farmer participatory approach.

    We apply a systematic review of peer-reviewed literature to assess constraining and enabling

    factors to the uptake of medium- to long-term climate information in a wide range of sectoral

    investment and planning decisions. Common applications of climate information are shown to

    relate to adaptation of environmental policy and planning, urban planning and infrastructure,

    as well as flood and coastal management. Analysis of identified literature highlights five

    Voluntary certification programs are one type of intervention used to incentivize the commodity agricultural sector in tropical forest landscapes to reduce deforestation and improve sustainability. These programs encourage supply-chain actors to produce and source products according to agreed standards. We review the cases of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) voluntary certification program in Indonesia, and the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) voluntary certification program for cattle in Brazil.

    The livestock sector is one of the major contributors in agriculture, by some estimates

    contributing up to 18% of the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Of this, about one

    third is reported to be due to land use change associated with livestock production, another

    one third is nitrous oxide from manure and slurry management, and roughly 25% is attributed

    to methane emissions from ruminant digestion. Recent analysis suggests that developing

    world regions contribute about two thirds of the global emissions from ruminants, with sub-
