The agriculture sector supports lives and livelihoods in communities around the world. FAO estimates that small-scale farmers produce over 70% of the world's food needs. Helping farmers cope with climate change impacts, while also reducing the sectors greenhouse gas emissions, requires outreach to large and small-scale farm operations. Transferring technology in the farming sector both reduces vulnerability to climate change risks while increasing food security and enhancing the overall health and well-being of farming communities. Ranging from conventional to organic regenerative farming practices, agricultural technologies encompass tools and techniques to grow and process food crops consumed locally and traded around the world.

The Kingdom of Eswatini is a landlocked country between South Africa and People’s Republic of Mozambique. The country faces numerous challenges such as poverty, chronic food insecurity, HIV/AIDS and climate-related disasters that include droughts, storms and floods and invasive plant and diseases. According to Eswatini's Third National Communication to the UNFCCC, between 1961 and 2010 there is an upward trend in mean annual temperature across the different parts of the country and a decrease in seasonal rainfall and an increase in frequencies of dry spells.
Workshop on sand and dust storms (SDS) technologies to control dust storms sources with focus on degraded lands, dried up riverbeds and lakes, and plains and agricultural fieldsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
FAST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
During the last two decades, sand and dust storms (SDS) phenomena have escalated in the world and particularly in West Asia and the Southern and Western parts of Iran, especially in Khuzestan province. The affected areas are faced with low food security. This is a threat to human life, flora and fauna in the affected regions. According to several studies, the intensity and frequency of dust storms due to climate change has increased in Iran.
