  • Renewable Energy Farming Solutions in Nicaragua:Tecnosol

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Nicaragua is an energy-poor and agriculture-dependent country. While the cattle and dairy sector is a dominating force among the country’s agricultural sectors, its productive output is remarkably low compared to that of neighbouring countries. Inefficient herding and farm management leads to hygiene issues, high loss of livestock and low production. Most small scale farmers lack access to modern energy. The sector is in dire need of productivity improvements to remain competitive in the region. 

  • Efficient Irrigation in Nicaragua: iDEal Tecnologias

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Nicaragua, one of Central America’s poorest countries, increasingly suffers from droughts and unstable weather conditions, hampering yields and output of smallholder farmers dependent on agriculture for livelihood. While only up to 10% of arable land is irrigated, Nicaragua requires sustainable solutions for the sector to tackle water scarcity, improve production and food security, and reduce GHG emissions from inefficient and poor farming practices.

  • 2015 Nutrition country profile: Nicaragua

    Type: 
    Publication

  • Dinámica de los procesos de intensificación ganadera en Nicaragua: un análisis comparativo de las principales zonas productivas y niveles tecnológicos

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    La ganadería ha sido uno de los subsectores económicos del país que más rápidamente ha crecido en las últimas décadas, no obstante, su crecimiento se ha logrado más por la vía extensiva que por cambios estructurales de manejo en las fincas. A pesar de algunas iniciativas exitosas de intensificación, la producción ganadera del país sigue estando rezagada en términos productivos y con importantes retos ambientales y sociales.
