Smart Technologies for Sustainable Smallholder Agriculture: Upscaling in Developing Countries by David Chikoye

Smart Technologies for Sustainable Smallholder Agriculture: Upscaling in Developing Countries defines integrated climate smart agricultural technologies (ICSAT) as a suite of interconnected techniques and practices that enhance quantity and quality of agricultural products with minimum impact on the environment. These ICSAT are centered on three main pillars, increased production and income, adaptation and resilience to climate change, and minimizing GHG emissions.

This book brings together technologies contributing to the three pillars, explains the context in which they can be scaled up, and identifies research and development gaps as areas requiring further investigation. It stresses the urgency in critically analyzing and recommending ICSAT and scaling out the efforts of both developing and disseminating these in an integrated manner.

The book discusses, synthesizes, and offers alternative solutions to agriculture production systems and socio-economic development. It brings together biophysical and socioeconomic disciplines in evaluating suitable ICSAT in an effort to help reduce poverty and food insecurity.

  • Highlights the research gaps and opportunities on climate smart agricultural technologies and institutional arrangements
  • Provides information on institutional engagements that are inclusive of value chain actors that support partnerships and the development of interactive platforms
  • Elaborates some of the effects of climate extremes on production and socioeconomic development on small farms whose impact has potentially large impact
