Are soil and water conservation technologies a buffer against production risk in the face of climate change? Insights from Ethiopia's Nile Basin

Primary tabs

This brief is based on a study that investigates the risk implications of various soil and water conservation technologies for crop production in Ethiopia?s Nile River Basin. The analysis identifies technologies that increase and decrease crop production risk?with risk defined as the degree of yield variability?for the purpose of isolating which technologies are best suited to particular regions and agroecological zones. These results could be used to improve the geographical targeting of soil conservation techniques as part of efforts to promote farm-level adaptation to climate change.
