    The Global Food Policy Report is IFPRI’s flagship publication. This year’s annual report examines major food policy issues, global and regional developments, and commitments made in 2015, and presents data on key food policy indicators. The report also proposes key policy options for 2016 and beyond to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2015, the global community made major commitments on sustainable development and climate change.

    Upstream water use is not adjusted to reflect rainfall fluctuations, and downstream farmers of the Nagarjuna Sagar irrigation project in the state of Andhra Pradesh are increasingly vulnerable to water supply shocks. This paper documents the wide range of adjustments adopted by managers and farmers in Nagarjuna Sagar during a period of fluctuating water availability (2000-2007). Primary and secondary data indicate managerial adjustments such as rotational and timely water supplies to meet critical water demands of standing crops.

    Réduction de 28% des émissions de GES par rapport aux émissions de l’année cible (2030) dans un scénario de base (Business As Usual ou BAU). Reduction of 28% in GHG emissions compared to emissions in the target year (2030) in a baseline scenario (BAU or Business As Usual).

    Enhancing water productivity is often recommended as a "soft option" in addressing the problem of increasing water scarcity. In this study, authors analysed the water productivity and GHG implications of water reuse through pumping groundwater and creek water, and compare this with gravity-fed canal irrigation in the Upper Pampanga River Integrated Irrigation System (UPRIIS) in the Philippines. Water productivity indicators show that water reuse contributes significantly to water productivity.

    Climate change is impacting water resources in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. In such context, this paper assesses the potential for wastewater reuse as an adaptation measure to cope with water scarcity in Can Tho City, within the heart of the Mekong Delta. Authors show that wastewater effluent can be used to irrigate at least to 22,719 ha of paddy rice (16% of the rice-cultivated area in the city) at 3 crops per year.

    “L’Union des Comores s’engage à réduire ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre de 84% à l’horizon 2030 par rapport aux émissions du scénario de référence de la même année. Cette réduction inclut les absorptions du secteur Utilisation des Terres, Changement d’Affectation des terres et Foresterie (UTCAF) également.” The Union of the Comoros aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 84% by 2030 relative to reference scenario emission levels in the same year. This reduction includes sinks from the Land Use, Land-Use Change, and Forestry (LULUCF) sector.
