Kharmina Anit

Kharmina Paola A. Anit has recently rejoined the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) Philippines as a National Consultant for Smart Tree-Invest, an IFAD-funded project. She worked for ICRAF in 2011-2013 under the payments for ecosystem services (PES) component of the Ridge to Reef Project. Her research interests are resource economics, population dynamics and PES. Kharmina is currently taking up MS in Environmental Science at the University of the Philippines Los Baños. Some of her publications are about the willingness to pay for water services and the use of the Soil and Water Assessment Tool in enhancing the effectiveness of PES.

Using local ecological knowledge to assess smallholders’ vulnerability

Researchers in the Philippines are collecting local ecological knowledge from smallholders as a first step in supporting farmers’ adaptation to climate variability and market fluctuations     Using the Capacity-strengthening Approach to Vulnerability Assessment (CaSAVA) method, researchers are...

From ‘energy poverty’ towards sustainable tree-based bioenergy

When it comes to energy, countries—and in particular developing ones—could take a strong cue from Europe, where the use of bioenergy has been rising over the past two decades. Aware that the current reliance on fossil fuels is...

Do trees on agricultural landscapes buffer the impacts of climate change?

Does the presence of trees buffer annual food crops from climate variability? Are trees in agricultural landscapes a relevant part of climate change adaptation strategies? van Noordwijk et al review these hypotheses in a chapter entitled Agroforestry solutions...

World leaders take note: there is a plan to address climate change in African landscapes

With several high-level international climate meetings underway this week, it is vital to ensure that commitments translate, quickly, into actions that have both climate mitigation as well as adaptation benefits. The newly released African Landscapes Action Plan provides...

Trees help farmers adapt to climate change

With trees, farmers have a source of food, fuel and timber for consumption or income during climate extremes   By Regine Evangelista   ‘There is nothing we can do’. With resignation and a hint of despair, this is...

Positive action on gender supports sustainable development

“Women produce up to three-quarters of the food crops grown in West and Central Africa, and their actions, for better or for worse, affect natural resources, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and ultimately shape the trajectory towards sustainable development....

The CGIAR Development Dialogues 2014 and Living Data competition

The year 2014 marks an historic opportunity to communicate the importance of research on sustainable agriculture to people involved in the policy processes on climate change and development. An online competition is intended to spark wide interest The...

Which agroforest for which farm under changing climates?

Agroforestry systems, as demonstrated in studies around the world, can help smallholders adapt to climate risks and at the same time mitigate climate change. However, to identify the best system there is a need to look closely at...

Sustainable land management depends heavily on a farmer’s overall income

Faced with the unreliable weather patterns in a changing climate, high population, and shrinking farm sizes, subsistence farmers in Africa are turning to various coping mechanisms in order to ensure a crop and some income. A survey in...
