Climate change is a concern for small farmers who are in the Bolivian highlands, affecting their livelihoods. For this, practical measures are required for prevention and mitigation of damage caused by extreme climatic events (frost, drought, hailstorms and floods), a requirement which can be summarized as the need for an agricultural risk management, as these two activities are the basis for food security and incomes of small farmers living in daily risk. In this context, this document presents the systematization of the most successful local practices, presenting the economic and institutional frameworks I which they are implemented.

In 2006, the Tungurahua volcano began its latest eruption processes, affecting some 30,000 people. This document systematizes thegood practices at the community level for risk management of natural and man-made disasters that affect the food security ofcommunities vulnerable to the Tungurahua. This systematization is an analytical reconstruction process, both from an institutional perspective, as well as a socila perspective on the capacities of members of a society or community, in this case farmers, to faceshocks and hazards, preventing and minimizing the damage, mitigating the effects of adverse events to ensure the provision of foodand agricultural production.

The use of renewable natural resources and watersheds in Ecuador can be characterized largely spontaneous or based on the needto use a particular resource, but not for a planned process, although this is changing now. In the Napo River Basin, which is the mostimportant means of transportation in the Ecuadorian Amazon, it is possible to identify concrete actions for land management with thepurpose optimizing planning and fostering development.

This paper examines some of the key technical, institutional, policy and financial responses required to achieve this transformation. Building on case studies from the field, the paper outlines a range of practices, approaches and tools aimed at increasing the resilience and productivity of agricultural production systems, while also reducing and removing emissions. The second part of the paper surveys institutional and policy options available to promote the transition to climate-smart agriculture at the smallholder level. Finally, the paper considers current financing gaps and makes innovative suggestions regarding the combined use of different sources, financing mechanisms and delivery systems.
