Welcome to SEARCA Knowledge Center on Climate Change Adaptation in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management in Southeast Asia (KC3)

Publications

This contains experience notes, adaptation notes, policy briefs, policy papers, technical reports, stories on good practices, and other publications related to climate change adaptation and mitigation in Southeast Asia not just from SEARCA, but also from KC3's partners and other agencies/institutions.

This guidebook is based on the experience gained from the pilot project titled, A Participatory Action Research on School and Community-based Food and Nutrition Program for Literacy, Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development, implemented by SEARCA, the Department of Education (DepEd)–Laguna, and the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). This Guidebook is meant for a wide audience, ministries or departments of education, local government units, and other development organizations interested in adopting the school-Plus-Home gardens model in their schools, community,…
The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), together with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Laguna, and three of its sister regional centers under the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), organized the “Training of Trainers on Scaling Up the School-plus-home Gardens Model in Southeast Asia” on 18-21 April 2018 at the SEARCA Headquarters, in line with efforts toward…
The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), together with the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) and the French Agricultural Research Center for International Development (CIRAD), spearheaded the Workshop on Applications of OneHealth Towards Sustainable Livestock Production in Southeast Asia on 25 October 2018 at the SEARCA Headquarters in Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines. The workshop is a part of efforts to promote a holistic and interdisciplinary approach toward balancing productivity and sustainable development in the expanding livestock industry in Southeast Asia.…
In general, the experts consultation forum on Reshaping Agriculture and Development in Southeast Asia aimed to distill from current developments and emerging scenarios the opportunities and challenges for direction setting and strategizing toward an integrated AD agenda in Southeast Asia to proactively address these rapid changes.Specifically, the regional experts consultation forum aimed for the following: Analyze opportunities and challenges for agriculture and development in the Southeast Asian region in the next 5–10 years. Calibrate the thrusts and themes where regional…
THE LAST WHALERSThree Years in the Far Pacific With a Courageous Tribe and a Vanishing Way of LifeBy Doug Bock Clark Our best bet for slowing down the planetary extinction we have set in motion is to focus on the collective. When we finally realize that we are in this together, that is when we will move away from our insatiable appetite for more. But we have precious few models that illustrate just what it means to know and act together, as…
Participatory land-use planning (PLUP) refers to a bottom-up method of analyzing land and water resources. In its current form, PLUP integrates inputs about climate change and sea level rise to help the community utilize the resources within its vicinities. In utilizing its resources, the community will be able to improve the people’s livelihoods and help them sustain such resources for the benefit of the next generations. This publication in implementing PLUP focused on climate-smart adaptation in Climate-Smart Villages (CSVs).
This manual is intended to provide simple and helpful information, especially to farmers and extension agents, in solving pests and diseases issues on rice production in the context of climate change. The publication tackles: the effects of climate change on agriculture; effects of climatic factors on the development of pests and diseases; and importance of an Early Warning System and the pest-smart interventions and recommendations to alleviate problems due to pests and diseases.
This book presents the gender dimensions of the relationship between agriculture and climate change. It explores whether men and women farmers experience similar or different vulnerabilities and coping mechanisms or adaptation measures in response to climate change risks. It identifies gender gaps in access to resources, information, services, technologies, training, finance, etc., which enable or constrain men and women to adopt CSA and practices, as well as presents examples of Participatory Vulnerability Analysis and participatory action research, which incorporate a…
Environmental stress represents the most limiting factor to food productivity. Not only do they impact the crops being cultivated, but they also hinder other agricultural crops from being introduced for production to areas that are not currently being used for agriculture.  One major problem in global agriculture is the significant fluctuations in annual crop yields due to the unpredictable and varying environmental stresses (e.g., drought, flooding, salinity, and high temperature). Accordingly, environmental stresses are often characterized by the simultaneous occurrence of…
This paper intends to provide comprehensive ideas and information about conservation agriculture as a biological engineering approach to sustainable food production in support of rural development in Southeast Asia. The basic principles of conservation agriculture, its advantages and benefits, its evolution, state of adoption in the world and in Southeast Asia, some recent advances in terms of experimental research in Southeast Asia, issues, constraints and challenges to its adoption, prospects for adoption in the region, and some policy implications are…
