Disaster risk reduction at farm level: Multiple benefits, no regrets

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

This report assesses and identifies solutions with special relevance for smallholder farmers: DRR good practices that work at farm-level and which, with small investments, can have a significant positive impact on the resilience of their livelihoods. It evaluates the cost-effectiveness and socio-ecological suitability of different specific DRR interventions, with the intention of providing decision-makers and farmers both with reliable assessments that can guide their decisions around DRR investment.

For smallholder farmers and development actors alike, the study findings can help prioritise options among a multitude of available DRR interventions, taking into account local contexts and specific needs. For policy-makers, this study is particularly valuable, as it offers cost–benefit figures for individual good practices as well as for combined interventions that are based on actually-observed impacts. The report also estimates the costs and benefits of upscaling selected good practices, thus providing insights to decision-makers on the relevance of establishing enabling conditions for replication beyond study sites.
