Effect of Rabbit Urine on the Larval Behavior, Larval Mortality, Egg Hatchability, Adult Emergence and Oviposition Preference of the Fall Armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda J.E. Smith)

The fall armyworm (FAW) (Spodoptera frugiperda J.E. Smith) is a major cereal pest threatening food security in Africa. African smallholder farmers apply various indigenous pest management practices, including rabbit urine; however, there is no scientific evidence for its efficacy.

Nature-based Solutions in agriculture: Project design for securing investment

Agriculture Nature-based Solutions (Ag NbS) have high potential to help mitigate the negative effects of climate change and protect biodiversity in working landscapes around the world. However, relative to its potential, Ag NbS has not scaled-up. One barrier to scaling is that Ag NbS tend to be capital intensive, requiring significant amounts of public funding or private investment, or a blend of grants and investment capital.

Nature-based Solutions in agriculture: Sustainable management and conservation of land, water and biodiversity

In agricultural landscapes, NbS can be applied for soil health, soil moisture, carbon mitigation (through soil and forestry), downstream water quality protections, biodiversity benefits as well as agricultural production and supply chains to achieve net-zero environmental impacts while achieving food and water security and meet climate goals.

Enabling advisory services for climate-smart agriculture

Implementing Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) practices requires changes in the behavior and strategy of millions of farmers. Rural Advisory Services (RAS) can play a crucial role in transitioning to CSA and help build resilient agrifood systems if a conducive environment for their effective functioning is created.
