Climate-smart initiatives for climate change adaptation and sustainability in prioritized agricultural production systems in Colombia (CSICAP)

Climate-smart initiatives for climate change adaptation and sustainability in prioritized agricultural production systems in Colombia (CSICAP)

Climate change is already harming Colombia’s agricultural sector. Its effects are reducing crop yields, increasing soil erosion, decreasing livestock, and resulting in shorter growing cycles. At the same time, livestock production and deforestation are increasing the country’s agricultural emissions.

This cross-cutting project will strengthen the ability of farmers to manage climate risks while also reducing agricultural emissions. It will do this by assisting farmers adopt digital agricultural production and climate adaptation technologies. National in scope, the initiative will strengthen the capacities of producers, technicians and institutions to inject a climate perspective in livestock and crop production.
