Reaching more farmers Innovative approaches to scaling up climate-smart agriculture p. 77-81Summary: A range of technological, institutional and policy options have been proposed by researchers and others to help agriculture become climate-smart. These include changes in agronomic practices, weather insurance, weather forecasts, agricultural diversification, stress-tolerant crop varieties, community management of soil and water resources, and policies related to water, energy and carbon management. Many of these interventions have been successful individually in raising production and income and in building resilience of farming communities in several regions. These interventions have, however, varying costs and economic impacts, and their implementation requires appropriate investment decisions in both on-farm capital and for wider agricultural outreach programmes. The evidence base for many of these interventions at a large scale need to further explored. There is a need to maximize synergies among these interventions as well as minimize trade-offs.
