Smallholder Mitigation: Whole Farm and Landscape Accounting

Event Date and Time

Thursday, October 27, 2011 (All day) to Friday, October 28, 2011 (All day)

Venue

FAO Headquarters

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will together host a workshop on smallholder mitigation. The purpose of the workshop is to advance knowledge and use of methods for the quantification of net emissions at the whole farm and landscape levels for developing country, smallholder contexts.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) will together host a workshop on smallholder mitigation. The purpose of the workshop is to advance knowledge and use of methods for the quantification of net emissions at the whole farm and landscape levels for developing country, smallholder contexts.

The workshop will be attended by experts in the area of smallholder mitigation with the objectives to:
(1) Identify needs for quantification methods appropriate to smallholders;
(2) Review state of methods for quantification of net emissions at the whole farm and landscape levels and their implications for applications to smallholder agriculture;
(3) Explore options for protocols and guidelines, identify gaps and define issues where further work is required (e.g., methods in use or development, data availability, precision-cost levels for different purposes, uncertainties, implementation issues, costs, and other pros and cons).

The intended output of the meeting is to get a shared understanding of the needs of users of whole farm and landscape accounting methods for smallholder agriculture. stocktaking of current methods and areas for further development, develop an action plan to further develop protocols and guidelines appropriate to smallholder contexts in developing countries.

Terms of reference for:

- Synthesis on state of the knowledge and practice for quantification of net emissions at the whole farm and landscape levels for smallholders, to be published in both scientific and user-friendly guidelines forms;
- Regional capacity strengthening program for whole farm and landscape method.
