The Brazil Africa Institute, in partnership with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP), has developed a catalogue of good agricultural practices in Brazil that can be applied in Africa. The study takes into account the similarities between the two regions that can ensure the successful transfer of practices.
Commissioned by IFAD, the catalogue entitled “Technologies for Climate-Resilient Smallholder Agriculture: Sharing practices from Brazil with Africa” aims to create opportunities for knowledge transfer between the two regions, strengthening South-South Cooperation practices in the fields of agriculture, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and value chains development.
The catalogue contains 11 case studies where technologies were used in small-scale agriculture in Brazil and can be applied in African contexts, in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The publication focuses on priority value chains in Africa: sorghum, millet, cowpea, rice, maize and soybean; cassava, fruit and vegetables; tree crops (cocoa, coffee, cashew and oil palm), and; protein production: livestock (poultry, goats and cows), fish farming and dairy.
