The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has the ambition to address the imbalance between knowledge and agricultural productivity and bridge the gap between these two areas. This initiative carries broad significance. First, GGGI will be starting a number of climate-smart agriculture and solar irrigation projects around the globe in 2021. Second, this publication serves as a practical guide and useful resource for practitioners, farmers, scientists, and technicians to better understand the initiative undertaken by GGGI. In this compendium, GGGI provides the latest knowledge and capacity building materials on these topics and offers information on the most relevant topics on technologies related to climate-smart agriculture and solar irrigation – both of which can be used as training materials. The presented information in this compendium is based on the training materials used for capacity building purposes of ICRAF-CGIAR partners between 2014 and 2020.

Overall, the technologies discussed in this compendium explain the general practices and are supported by case studies. Because each context is specific, these technologies need to be adopted within a context, considering its institutional, economic, social and environmental aspects.
