This book assesses and identifies
solutions with special relevance for
smallholder farmers: DRR good
practices that work at farm-level and
which, with small investments, can
have significant positive impact on
the resilience of their livelihoods.
It evaluates the cost-effectiveness and
socio-ecological suitability of
different specific DRR interventions, with
the intention of providing
decision-makers and farmers both with reliable
assessments that can guide their decisions
around DRR investment. For
smallholder farmers and development
actors alike, the study findings can
help prioritize options among a
multitude of available DRR interventions,
taking into account local contexts
and specific needs. For policy‑makers,
this study is particularly valuable,
as it offers cost–benefit figures for
individual good practices as well as
for combined interventions that are
based on actually-observed impacts.
The report also estimates the costs
and benefits of upscaling selected
good practices, thus providing insights
to decision-makers on the relevance
of establishing enabling conditions
for replication beyond study sites.
