Catalogue of Knowledge Management (KM) and Decision Support (DS) methods, tools and products on Sustainable Land and Water Management (SLM)

This catalogue was prepared in the context of the User Needs Survey on Sustainable Land and Water Management (SLM) launched in March 2013. It summarises the key KM and DS methods, tools and products on SLM, produced over the last 30 years by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), its Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands Programme (LADA) and the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT).

General Objective of the Catalogue

This catalogue was prepared to help User Needs Survey on Sustainable Land and Water Management (SLM) Survey respondents to familiarize themselves with the existing KM and DS methods, tools and products produced over the last 30 years by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), its Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands Programme (LADA) and the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT).

Structure of the Catalogue

This Catalogue is divided into 8 sections referring to different areas on Sustainable Land and Water Management:

Water (Water Quality, Water Harvesting, Irrigation Management, Crops and Water Management)Land (Soil Assessment, Soil Management, Land Use Planning, Rangelands and Grasslands)Trees and Forestry (Forestry Management and Conservation)Climate Change (Climate-Smart Agriculture (Mitigation+Adaptation+Productivity), Climate Change Mitigation in Agriculture (Including Soil Carbon Sequestration))Impact AssessmentPolicy ...

Improving Gender Equality in Territorial Issues (IGETI)
Integrated Guidelines

These guidelines intend to provide target users with the knowledge to establish an environment where all actors in a given territory are listened to, sensitized and empowered to speak (and negotiate) for themselves on matters concerning equal access for men, women, youths, the poor to land and territorial development. No one knows better than local actors the prevailing patterns of social, environmental, economic, demographic, institutional change that has been adopted in their region and the influence that these changes - details of local history, environment, socio-economic, indigenous knowledge and skills on land use patterns, social-cultural specific contexts and institutional practices - have had on the local development context, especially in terms of land access and territorial development requirements for women and men. Their expertise should form the basis for the design of any programme that aims to improve their livelihoods, and external actors should start from a clear, direct engagement with them.

Una vision del tema de la tierra y el territorio orientada hacia los pueblos indi­genas
Un enfoque posible

Este documento es el resultado de un proceso comenzado hace unos años y refleja el camino recorrido desde entonces. Se trata de una ruta de posible convergencia en torno a principios básicos sobre la manera de abordar la cuestión territorial de los pueblos indígenas a partir de los principios que rigen la comunidad internacional y han sido consagrados en varios documentos de las Naciones Unidas, y de las experiencias concretas que los participantes en este debate han adquirido y siguen acumulando en materia de tierra y territorios autóctonos.La inspiración inicial proviene de la Declaración Final de la Conferencia Internacional sobre Reforma Agraria y Desarrollo Rural (CIRADR), celebrada en marzo de 2006 en Porto Alegre, Brasil. El propósito de este documento es, por un lado, proporcionar información actualizada sobre las discusiones iniciadas desde 2010 y por otro lado, confirmar la existencia de una voluntad clara de profundizar el tema de tierra y territorio junto a los pueblos indígenas tomando como punto de partida las experiencias de personas y organizaciones que conocen profundamente el tema y se ocupan de él desde hace años. Los principios mencionados y las herramientas propuestas constituyen así una plataforma para impulsar una discusión más amplia y una integración de visiones que pueda dar lugar a iniciativas concretas en el terreno.

Développement territorial participatif et négocié (DTPN)
Un abrégé de proposition méthodologique

L’apparition du concept de territorialité, en matière de développement rural, n’est pas le fruit du hasard mais le résultat des bouleversements économiques et sociaux qui ont lieu dans les pays et du phénomène plus vaste de la globalisation. La territorialité répond à la nécessité d’adaptation des méthodologies, des moyens à mettre en oeuvre et des actions à entreprendre pour faire face à ces changements et à leurs effets indésirables. En outre, le concept de territorialité propose une image différente des questions liées à l’espace territorial et interpelle directement les populations rurales, de plus en plus souvent invitées à se prononcer sur de nouvelles perspectives quant à leur développement.

 Le présent document est le résultat d’un processus de mises au point successives des contributions de divers auteurs, à partir du premier document portant sur le DTPN, disponible en anglais, en espagnol et en portugais à l’adresse suivante http://www.fao.org/sd/dim_pe2/pe2_050402a1_en.htm. Une adaptation portugaise fut ensuite élaborée à partir de ces documents de base (Comunicação, Diálogo, Conciliação) [http://www.fao.org/uploads/media/Comunicacao_Dialogo_conciliacao.pdf] ainsi qu’une traduction en anglais (Dialogue, Consensus and Vision) [ftp://ftp.fao.org/docrep/fao/012/ak545e/ak545e00.pdf]

8. Review of evidence on drylands pastoral systems and climate change - Implications and opportunities for mitigation and adaptation

The review highlights the significant untapped potential for climate change mitigation and adaptation associated with improved management of grazing lands in pastoral systems and rangelands. Grasslands and rangelands deserve greater attention, not only for their large extent, widespread degradation and limited resilience to drought and desertification, but also for their potential capacity to sequester and store carbon in soils. Degradation of the land base negatively affects the accumulation of carbon in the soils. Thus, reversing land degradation in extensive dryland areas through improved pasture and rangeland management would contribute to restoring the soil carbon sink while also improving livelihoods of pastoral and agropastoral peoples. The review also highlights the multiple benefits of enhancing ecosystem services and processes for improving livelihoods while contributing to adaptation to climate change impacts. Realizing this potential will require increased awareness and coordinated global efforts alongside interventions that address associated socio-political and economic barriers, such as land tenure constraints and inadequate services for, and political marginalization of, pastoral and agropastoral communities. The opportunity to support climate change mitigation in drylands that will simultaneously contribute to climate change adaptation and reduced vulnerability of pastoral societies should be a key area of focus in post-Kyoto mechanisms.
