Climate Change in the NENA and its Implications on Agriculture and Rangelands

  1. 1. Climate Change in the NENA and its Implications on Agriculture and Rangelands Ajit Govind Climatologist, ICARDA 2nd NENA Land and Water Days, Cairo, 31 March - 4 April 2019 Contributors: Drs.

  5. 5. MRBFarmer Practice Agril Engineering Interventions for Enhanced WUE under CC ICARDA-led work has demonstrated that use of wide furrows has advantages over farmers’ practices in terms of: • 20% saving of irrigation water. • 38% increase in crop water productivity. • 640 kg/ha increase in wheat grain yield.

  9. 9. Breeding-based Crop Improvement for Climate Smart Ag • In several locations in MENA, ICARDA is characterizing accessions of Food legumes (chickpea, faba bean, and lentil) for heat, water and salt tolerance. • Characterizing accessions of Barley and Durum Wheat for heat, water and salt tolerance • Characterizing accessions of Forage Crops water and salt tolerance. • Scaling of new drought tolerant barley and legume varieties in various regions of MENA
  10. 10. 10 Vulnerability and Resilience of Rangelands in MENA under CC • The combined effects of climate change and animal pressure on rangelands of the WANA region may have significant adverse impacts on range species under high CO2 emissions scenarios. • Clearly, an adaptation strategy needs to be developed for the MENA region. It should target increasing the resilience of the most vulnerable species based on better control of grazing pressure, the selection of more drought tolerant taxa and the establishment of other mitigation measures, such as water harvesting techniques. Forage Cactus is promising in Rangelands of MENA

  13. 13. • Need a centrally-coordinated, multi-disciplinary, multi- locational , multi-scale, observational strategy having a standardized-protocol. • Enrich a database on meteorological, hydrological, agronomic, livestock, edaphic, socioeconomic parameters in different ecosystems in the MENA. • Better understand CC and to aid in model CALVAL and analysis. • It is also a strategy to enter into partnerships and engaging various actors in the region. Need for a Collective CC Intelligence in NENA
