This analytical report published by Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) outlines four key climate-smart agriculture techniques: conservation agriculture (tillage, cover crops, and rotation), irrigation, agroforestry, and soil conservation structures. The report examines the results of current research on the effects of these techniques, their gaps and limitations, and the extent to which they have been adopted in Latin America. The analysis presents how better to design projects promoting climate-smart agriculture and assesses their future impact on Latin American farmers.
