USAID’s LESTARI project, implemented from 2015–2020, advanced the Government of Indonesia’s self-reliance to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from land use and to conserve biodiversity in carbon-rich and biologically significant forest and mangrove ecosystems.
Haiti is one of the most food-insecure countries in the world: around 70 percent of the population is food insecure. Of the BHA target geographies, the Centre department experiences severe chronic food insecurity, while the North-East, South, and Grand’Anse departments experience moderate chronic food insecurity.
Mozambicans experience high rates of chronic food insecurity. Chronic malnutrition is most widespread in the northern provinces—including Zambezia—where populations experience high rates of chronic food insecurity, and less access to health services, water, sanitation, and education.
Cameroon is ‘Africa in miniature’ as it is home to 90% of Africa’s ecological systems. A large part of Cameroon is under the Congo basin, which holds over 15% of the world’s remaining tropical forests.
Temperature management is the major factor in reducing food loss and waste (FLW) in fruits and vegetables. Cold storage allows for produce to stay fresh for longer periods by slowing down its physiological changes that can lead to quality deterioration.
To help manage the far-reaching risks of a changing and variable climate in Africa, investments in climate services must simultaneously meet context-specific needs and have a broad scale impact. However, making this investment work for smallholder farmers, at scale, has been challenging.
Well-functioning climate services can play a critical role in managing the risks of a changing and variable climate, helping decision-makers understand, anticipate, and manage climate-related risks across a range of time scales, from days to decades.
USAID Sustainable Landscapes Program and USDA Foreign Agricultural Service worked with Agribusiness Associates on an applied research project to enable greater investments in Food Loss and Waste (FLW) and integrate FLW into climate-smart agriculture programming.
This is a webinar of the virtual soft launch of the Food Loss and Waste Value Chain Selection Guide. The Food Loss and Waste Value Chain Selection Guide has been developed with funding support from USAID Sustainable Landscapes Program and USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.
