NS-259 - Sustainable Agriculture through Integrated Crop and Livestock Farming


NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

  • A Overview
    • A.1Party
      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action
      The main interventions are as follows:
      (i) reduction of GHG emissions from agriculture through promotion of use of fertilisers with high nutrient efficiencies and use of im-proved crop varieties and improved management practices through conservation agriculture;
      (ii) reduction of GHG emissions from livestock through introduction and promo-tion of pasture conservation and through improved breeds coupled with integrated pest and disease control;
      (iii) re-duction of GHG emissions through use of improved ma-nure management (i.e. biogas production); and (iv) en-gagement of relevant stakeholders on policies related to scaling up sustainable agriculture and GHG emissions reduction.

       ii. Improved soil and water management practices ;
       iii. Improvement of pastures and livestock with lower methane production;
       iv. Improvement in the control of pests and diseases for livestock;
