      Promotion of Climate-Smart Agriculture through the Improvement of Water Resources` Utilisation in Arid Areas of Shaanxi Province

      Water scarcity is one of the key bottle necks that impede agriculture development in Shannxi province, which is located in the northwestern part of China. Insufficient water supply , especially drought and desertification, would reduce local food yield by a considerable margin. In the long run, the water shortage would affect food security and sustainable agriculture development in local areas. As a knowledge forum, FAO has the right expertise, network and project experience in the area of rainfed agriculture. FAO is well positioned to support advanced technology transfer ,demonstration and capacity development, as well as facilitate international exchanges on rainfed agriculture development. The Government would therefore request FAO's assitance in support of local rainfed agriculture development.

      215,000
      North China Plain, also addressed as the Yellow, Huaihe and Haihe River Basin is one of the major grain production bases in China. As a part of the Plain, the Huaibei City of Anhui Province witnesses an annual cropping area of 266,000 hectares, which makes it home to 1.5 million metric tons of straws. Local straw utilization rate, however, is as low as 30% only. The government requests assistance from FAO on integrated utilization in view of FAO¡¯s comparative technical advantages on the same topic. It is expected that the technical assistance would fill the gap on straw utilization in the contest of China nowadays. With FAO¡¯s successful modality for adult education and capacity development, including the Farmer Field Schools in particular, it is expected that the technologies introduced through this project could be effectively and efficiently transferred to target beneficiaries for solving the identified problem.

      Strengthening Forest Tenure for Sustaining Livelihoods and Generating Income

      2017
      418,000
      Improving livelihoods and income of forest dependent communities is important in the context of poverty reduction efforts, enhancing food security and sustainable management of forest resources. In order to achieve improved livelihoods and income for those people one of the main barrier is lack of strong and secured tenure. Their access to forest resources and land are not adequately protected by policies, policy implementation and law. There two main elements that explain the situation: 1. Weak and/or lack of forest tenure policy frameworks that can protect the rights and access of forest dependant community to resources available in the forests. Where policy frameworks exist they often not implemented adequately due to various reasons, e.g. lack of human resource capacity, knowledge, budget, skills, etc. 2. Weak and/or lack of institutional capacity to implement and support the process to strengthen forest tenure. Countries often lack knowledge and skills to support the process of strengthening forest tenure. New tools and approaches need to be introduced and institutionalized to cope with rapid changes and changing demands of society on forests. The main purpose of the TCP is therefore to strengthened regulatory frameworks and institutional capacity of pilot countries on forest tenure. In the long run forest dependent communities in pilot countries are expected to have more secured and stronger forest tenure rights as a key prerequisite for ensuring the contribution of forests to their livelihoods and income.
