FAO: Disaster resilient farming reduces agriculture risks, brings economic gains

16.05.2019 16:34 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of this week, FAO (UN Food and Agriculture Organization) has issued a study titled Disaster risk reduction at farm level: Multiple benefits, no regrets, UN Radio reports. As to the report, the study shows that poor farmers worldwide can obtain significant economic gains and other benefits by implementing modified farming practices aimed at boosting their ability to cope with disasters and natural shocks. «The study makes clear that in most cases, disaster risk reduction (DRR) efforts on the farm make good economic sense: that investing in DDR early can save many dollars that would otherwise be spent on post-disaster rehabilitation,» Dominique Burgeon, Director of FAO Emergency and Resilience Division, has said within the foreword to the study. As to the study, FAO has been making multi-year trials on over 900 farms within 10 different countries — what proves that many of the low-cost farming innovations are quite possible to be used by the poor farmers. And, they are much more than buffers against disasters. The study shows that good practices have considerable potential to reduce damages caused to the developing agricultural farms worldwide by small-scale, low-intensity disasters. While these gain less attention than large-scale hazards (like dry or cold spells), they represent a constant problem for the 2.5 milliard people who rely on small-scale agriculture.
