En quoi l’agroécologie peut-elle contribuer à l’adaptation au changement climatique et la sécurité alimentaire ?
Des approches systémiques telles que l’agroécologie sont nécessaires pour une transformation durable des systèmes alimentaires et une amélioration de la sécurité alimentaire, tout en favorisant l’adaptation au changement climatique. Cette note s’appuie sur des évaluations participatives des pratiques agroécologiques de la gestion durable des terres dans 7 pays. Elle montre comment ces pratiques peuvent contribuer à des stratégies d’adaptation efficaces et fournit des recommandations sur l’intégration des aspects d’adaptation dans les interventions concernant la santé des sols.
What can agroecology do for climate change adaptation and food security? – The Case of soil protection and rehabilitation
Systemic approaches such as agroecology are needed to sustainably transform food systems and improve food security while fostering adaptation to climate change. This brief draws from participatory assessments of agroecological practices for soil protection and rehabilitation in 7 countries. It demonstrates how such practices can contribute to effective adaptation strategies and provides recommendations on integrating adaptation concerns into soil health interventions.
Tackling gender inequality and disparities is crucial to build resilient communities and economies.

This policy brief gives an overview of pastoral systems in Africa’s drylands in the face of a changing climate – and serves as a short version of a technical background paper. It highlights the remarkable ability of pastoralists to adapt to the impacts of climate change, gives valuable insights and offers lessons e.g. for smallholder farming in drylands. The publication explores key factors enabling and hampering the resilience of pastoral systems. It demonstrates the link between pastoralists’ climate resilience and agroecological principles of good governance and diversification.
This technical background paper dives deep into pastoral systems in Africa’s drylands in the face of a changing climate – and complements a shorter policy brief. It highlights the remarkable ability of pastoralists to adapt to the impacts of climate change, gives valuable insights and offers lessons e.g. for smallholder farming in drylands. The publication explores key factors enabling and hampering the resilience of pastoral systems. It demonstrates the link between pastoralists’ climate resilience and agroecological principles of good governance and diversification. As an appropriate enabling environment is based on good governance, access to land and water, strong customary institutions, diversification and integration of different systems.
For the current Cai Be/Cai Lon sluice gate location in southern Vietnam, an ensemble of global climate models can provide some future guidance of precipitation change from present conditions, which can help inform future expectations of meteorological drought. Using the RSI CCHIP tool, ensemble average projections of future precipitation are provided using an ensemble of all AR5 assessment GCMs under the high emission scenario (RCP8.5).
This publication provides an overview of selected tools that businesses can use to identify climate risks and impacts in their regions and economic sectors, and a short guidance as to how this information can be used to build a company’s narrative towards their adaptation relevance.
The technical summary presents a framework that highlights common elements in the adaptation and biodiversity planning process and provides insights into relevant case studies from different countries that illustrate key lessons learned and best practices. These could be applied or inspire the revision, formulation and implementation of the National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan Processes (NBSAPs), to promote synergies and efficient resource allocation.
This Briefing provides an introduction to climate change adaptation, its relevance for impact investors and how the issue can be addressed in investment strategies. The focus lies on investment opportunities in SMEs and growth stage companies in developing countries and emerging markets. At the same time, much of the analytical framework is applicable to developed markets as well, for example how to identify adaptation-relevant business models.
