Activity Details

Climate Resilient Agriculture for Disaster Risk


ObjectivesThis session aims to jointly collaboration between Agriculture Working Group and Disaster Mitigation Working Group to integrate sustainable agriculture, climate change adaptation, and disaster risk reduction for resilient livelihood. This collaboration will identify and discuss on current status, target, and plan of each working group. Then summarize the possible collaboration and mutually agree on the goals of future collaboration. This collaboration will create good practices on disaster risk reduction and strengthen networks for sustainable development and innovation.

AgendaPresentation and discussion on the requirements and status and plan of each working group such as target current status from Agriculture Working Group
1.  1) Climate Resilience Agriculture for Disaster Risk Reduction: A Case of Thailand   Slides (PDF)
Sutat Weesakul, Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute, Ministry of Science and Technology, Thailand
The information of various extreme indices of Thailand show the tendency of longer wet days, shorter dry days, heavier/ more intensity rainfalls and more fluctuation in the future. More than 50 communities working with HAII may face flood, and more than 370 communities may have drought in the near future. HAII collaborated with National Farmer Council to create "Water Management Operation Center" at the provincial level to increase understanding, preparation, and readiness of farmers in the area of weather forecasting, water situation, water for agriculture, and seasonal forecasting. The center will also apply the collected information for agricultural planning and response to the urging challenges. In the presentation, HAII show the example of National Farmer Council "Water Management Operation Center" at Sa Kaeo province which is initiated last two years and now become the good practices site in term of operation and management at local level.
2.  Climate Change Researches in NIAES    Slides (PDF)
Takuji Kiura, National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO), Japan
Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences is in charge of ensuring the safety of agricultural production environments. Estimation of the impact on agricultural production by Climate Change, the effect of mitigation and adaptation against it, are also research area of NIAES. In this presentation. Climate Change related research activities in NIAES would be summarized.
3.  FLOOD RISK DUE TO STORM SURGES DURING SUPER STORMS IN THE COASTAL ZONE OF QUANG NINH PROVINCE   Slides (PDF)
Tran Van Nam
Storm surges pose a serious threat to coastal areas. A storm surge is an event where the level of sea water increases significantly during storm events. This could be further exacerbated by high tides. This study studies the level of hazard poses by storm surge combined with high tides for the coastal province Quang Ninh in Viet Nam. 5 scenarios were used in the study using different storm category (wind speed, atmospheric pressure), tidal condition, and flood frequency. The results provided an overview of the level of flooding due to storm surges and high tides for the province.
4.  Study the Climate variability impact on crop yield using modeling approach

The major objective of the study is to develop a new method for crop yield intensification under climate variability condition. To achieve the objectives, it is necessary to investigate the precise behavior of crop under climate variability condition and the role of water and nitrogen dynamics into the crop physiology and productivity. The robust modelling approach needs to be used to get the effective results because dealing with climate variability is difficult for most of the existing crop models. The MLCan model is being used in this study, which is process-based vegetation model and effective in environmental variability condition. It is plant-atmospheric interaction model that does not contain agronomic modules. Therefore, we have developed the crop growth processes in this model and the water & nitrogen management modules development part is in progress. As an initial sensitivity analysis for inter-annual rainfall variability, it was observed that the model is more sensitive to solar radiation than rainfall. To fix this issue, currently, MLCan model is being incorporated with dynamic root distribution system. For performance assessment of the model, the results from upgraded MLCan model will be validated against field observed data. The field experiment is being performed in ARI, Hyderabad, India. As a brief, there are three water & three nitrogen treatments given to the maize crops. The variation in treatments is intentionally given to apply the water and nitrogen stress condition and to check the model's performance for these conditions. For the validation of the model, the data is being collected using ground based instruments and drone sensing. Apart from optimization of water and nitrogen use, One of the objective is to identify the water and nitrogen stress in the farm using drone based hyperspectral data.
