Benefits of farm level disaster risk reduction practices in agriculture

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is conducting a comprehensive study across regions to assess the benefit from applying DRR good practices in agriculture. The study identify practices that help to reduce the vulnerability of households and communities to natural hazards. The study uses a systematic approach to quantify, on a case-by-case basis, how much damage and loss can be reduced in the agriculture sector through the implementation of DRR good practices at farm level, compared with usual practices. The approach compares the performance under hazard and non-hazard conditions, including various types of hazards and agroecological zones.

This document summarizes the preliminary findings from the study’s pilot phase. The analyses presented are based on data collected from ongoing projects that promote local good practices for DRR and climate change adaptation. The aim is to inform policy-makers and DRR practitioners on the opportunities to reduce risk exposure of farmers by the result of this study.
