Climate variability has a strong global impact on the extent and productivity of both irrigated and rain-fed agriculture and is considered a major challenge for meeting food and nutrition security. The Mediterranean and the arid areas of Sub-Saharan Africa are significantly affected by climate change, leading to increased exposure to uncertainty and production risks. These regions are already particularly affected by water stress, erratic rainfall levels, salinity, and rising sea levels. The rising temperatures are translated into increased water demand from the agriculture sectors. This requires improving the productivity of the agricultural system via Climate-Smart Farm Practices (CSFPs) using the principle of soil and water conservation when introducing new crops that are tolerant to drought and salinity stress in these systems and managing and valorising the vegetative and animal residues, particularly the residues from large ruminates given that these animals are the primary sources of emissions.
This project proposes high socio-economic and environmental benefits, including reduced GHGs, diversified incomes and generated additional job opportunities. Moreover, this projects’ partnerships aim to improve livelihoods beyond the benefits of reduced GHG emissions and groundwater contamination by increasing revenues for farmers from the sale of vermicompost and livestock production
