This a farming approach that JCED is promoting among the communities to restore degraded agro-ecosystems. Through this approach, JCED aims at improving food security, helping communities to adapt to climate change and to mitigate climate change. These objectives fall under 3 pillars of CSA which are; strengthening resilience in agriculture (Adaptation), reduce agriculture's contribution to climate change (mitigation), and sustainably increase agricultural productivity (Food Security).
JCED has 30 Farmers Field Schools through which various farming technologies under CSA are demonstrated and promoted for people to adopt in their own farming fields. The practices include; Soil cover, Manure making and usage, crop diversification, Agroforestry, soil and water conservation, proper crop husbandry practices and farm business approaches in farming etc. An average number of 20 farmers gather at one Farmers Field School, run a demonstration plot and experience the work-ability of the technologies on the demo plots and they practice they are encouraged to practice the same in their own fields. The demonstration plots benefit other community members indirectly.
