The factsheet “Agroecology – From Principles to Transformative Pathways” gives an insight into how the 13 principles of agroecology can be used to shape a pathway for food and agriculture systems transformation. It compiles five good practices from GIZ projects in India, Mali and Mexico as well as two Global Programmes which are operating in various African and Asian countries. The holistic agroecological approaches i.e. include women self-help groups, multi-stakeholder dialogues, aquaculture, rural youth employment and biodiversity protection – just to name a few.
This factsheet gives an overview of the economic potential of agroecology – and shows that agroecological systems can be more profitable than conventional systems, depending on the context. Findings from an exemplary GIZ project underline that agroecology can lead to economic benefits.
This position paper reflects on the potential of agroecology for a sustainable transformation of agricultural and food systems. It elaborates on five positions, provides a set of recommendations on actions and gives an overview of useful tools and trainings as well as guidelines.
CRISP helps practitioners and policy makers in the agri-food sector to understand climate related risks, and to identify relevant adaptation options for their specific agricultural systems. This publication illustrates the practical application of the CRISP tool in Bolivia and Zambia. To show you what the tool can do, and which impacts it has already generated, two projects are presenting their findings in this factsheet.
The Compendium provides an overview of the most relevant tools that can be applied to integrate climate change adaptation and mitigation into development projects. It categorizes these tools by level and complexity of application, methodology and target group and prepares the tools for a more convenient application by practitioners. The tools enable entry points for agroecological transformation and identify site-appropriate agroecological practices. The interactive Product Landscape complements the Compendium and gives a visual overview of and easy access to the tools as well as additional relevant documents.
Increasing urbanization, coupled with limited urban planning, puts cities at risk from climate change. Ecosystem-based approaches to Adaptation (EbA) are a cost-effective approach to reduce the vulnerability of urban and peri-urban communities to climate change. The Green wall and green roofs are defined also potential urban EbA components and can be seen as complimentary to the land-based gardens in the efforts of maintaining green spaces in urban areas while there is limited land. The Implementation Guideline on Green Wall and Green Roofs has been developed based on practical experiences of piloting Green Wall and Green Roofs in Dong Hoi city, Quang Binh province, Viet Nam in the scope of the “Support to Viet Nam for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement” (VN-SIPA) project. The guideline aims at enabling the implementation of such measures in a variety of other contexts and locations by providing basic technical concepts, details of benefits, and implementation procedures.
The interrelationship of urban development and growth and the increasing impact of climate change require that adjustments be made to urban planning and development. The integration of elements of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) into urban development provides an opportunity for cities create attractive, green, healthy, and livable urban spaces. The Implementation Guidelines on Water Retention Areas have been developed based on practical experiences of piloting Water Retention Areas in Dong Hoi city, Quang Binh province, Viet Nam in the scope of the “Support to Viet Nam for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement” (VN-SIPA) project. The guidelines provide an in-depth analysis of the technical concepts regarding the measures and the financial requirements for users.
The study "Climate Change, Mobility and Conflict Nexus: The Role of Local Knowledge and Practices for Policy-Making", made in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), delves into the intricate interplay between climate change, human mobility, and conflict dynamics in the Moyale-Moyale Borderlands, a region spanning northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia. Through extensive engagement with local communities and governmental bodies, the research explores various dimensions of this nexus. It investigates the evolution of conflicts, from traditional practices to contemporary dynamics, and assesses policies and practices aimed at conflict mitigation in the face of climate change and human mobility challenges. Additionally, the study delves into the roles of indigenous knowledge, gender dynamics, and land use policies, aiming to inform decision-making and interventions to foster resilience and peacebuilding in pastoralist communities.
