A Systems Approach to Climate-Smart Agriculture

Climate-smart agriculture interventions must take a “systems approach” in order to address a broad spectrum of issues. This video outlines the use of “participatory system dynamics modeling” to test assumptions about the relationships between agricultural activities and the impacts on the larger landscape. Often these assumptions are not well founded. Using this approach can help to validate assumptions and thus reprioritize efforts to have a greater development outcomes.
