Week 4: Field-tested agroforestry and forest enrichment good practice options to support small holders adapting to climate change in the Cordilleras, the Philippines

This week you will learn about the results of the field testing of the different good practice options and technologies for CCA in agriculture, in particular those related to agroforestry and forest enrichment.

These good practice options were field-tested in terms of technological suitability, environmental efficiency and effectiveness, and socio-economic acceptability as well as if they are able to a) address slow on-setting climate change impacts; b) reduce risk and impact of climate variability and extreme weather events (and other hazards); and c) enhance livelihood security. The following good practice options were tested: rambutan, pomelo and coffee for forest enrichment, rehabilitating riverbanks using Lanao bamboo and integrating lemon in vegetable farms for slope protection.
