Material type: materialTypeLabelChapterPublisher: India : Allied Publisher Pvt. Ltd. 2017Subject(s): Wheats | Adaptation | Conservation agricultureOnline resources: Access only for CIMMYT Staff In: Agriculture under climate change: Threats, strategies and policies p. 147-154Summary: The Indo-Gangetic plains, one of the highly populated regions of the world having extreme density of poverty and malnourished people is most vulnerable region in terms of climate change induced variability and hence has serious implications for food security and economy. Since the impact of climate change induced variability is complex and has local level causes and effects, the solutions are not simple and require locally-adapted practices with real time decision making by the farming households/community. The practices, technologies or services which simultaneously help in improving adaptive capacity, improve food security and reduce environmental foot prints of food production defined as ‘Climate Smart Agriculture’ needs a system and community based approach. Therefore, evidence on such Climate Smart Agricultural Practices (CSAPs) adapted to local situations are needed for their targeting to relevant farm typologies and investment priorities for impact at scale. The Climate Smart Village (CSV) concept, a community based approach to sustainable agriculture provides common platform to researchers, extension agents, local governments, farmers groups, private sectors and the service sector to collaborate and identify most appropriate CSAPs to tackle local challenges related to climate change. In this article we provide the provide a synthesis on scalable CSAPs in intensive cereal based systems of IGP.
