FAO, IFAD and national governments are supporting family farmers from West and Central Africa to adapt small-scale irrigation systems to climate change to be more resilient. A survey was carried out among 691 households in 21 sites in this region, to assess how farmers are coping with climate change. Watch the video to see the results. For more information on the project “Adapting small-scale irrigation to climate change in West and Central Africa”, see http://www.fao.org/in-action/aicca/

Men and women often have different roles and responsibilities in society and therefore experience climate change impacts in different ways. This video shows what Colombia, Uganda and Viet Nam are doing to develop gender-responsive national adaptation plans for the agriculture sectors. This country-driven work is carried out under a global programme known as Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag), jointly coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Nasho is one of the areas in Rwanda's Eastern Province where food production decreased due to drought caused by climate change.

80 percent of Rwandans depend on agriculture for their livelihoods and because of the drought many lost their jobs. Some fled to other countries.

In 2015, FAO launched a project to enhance small-scale irrigation technologies, targeting Kirehe, Kayonza and Nyagatare Districts. The farmers were trained on how to use and maximize the technologies.

Farmers from the “Calena” cooperative in Nasho received irrigation equipment and are now able to farm their fields by pumping water from Lake Nasho. They no longer only depend on rain to grow crops, and can cultivate year-round.

La sequía es un evento de lento desarrollo que impacta alrededor de un 60% al Sector Agropecuario en todo el mundo. Por sus efectos en la producción de alimentos y en el acceso a recursos, pone en peligro el sustento y la vida de millones de familias. Contar con datos de monitoreo continuo permite tomar decisiones rápidas y oportunas frente al riesgo de sequía. La FAO ha desarrollado un sistema de vigilancia, que permite a los países monitorear la vegetación y los cultivos de su territorio con información capturada vía satélite.   Se trata de la herramienta ASIS-País, Sistema del Índice de Estrés Agrícola.
La FAO brinda acompañamiento técnico a los países para que utilicen la herramienta ASIS-País y sirva de apoyo en la formulación y en la puesta en marcha de los planes de mitigación y emergencias.

The preparation of a national greenhouse gas inventory is an essential element in moving towards a greener economy, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. In Bangladesh, the compilation of a national a greenhouse gas inventory for the agriculture, forestry and other land use sector is made difficult by a lack of reliable data, limited documentation and a limited number of national greenhouse gas inventory experts. Since 2012, with the technical support of FAO, Forest Department under the Ministry of Environment and Forests aims to strengthen the national capacities and build a critical mass of people to reliably estimate emissions that result from human activities. A robust national greenhouse gas inventory system is critical to monitor efforts that intend to reduce emissions, as well as for integrating climate change into government’s national planning and for international reporting purposes under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
