    Climate change has intensified over the past 80 years in Mongolia, with the average air temperature increasing by 2 25 degrees Celsius, which is twice the global average More than three quarters of the entire territory of the country is subject to desertification to some extent, and half of the total area is already classified as heavily desertified The number of climate related hazards and natural disasters in the country has tripled in the last decade In recent years, 60 percent of the total land area of the country has been affected by drought, with some regions experiencing two consecutive years of it Additionally, in the summer of 2020 early warnings of a harsh winter became apparent, indicating the likelihood of dzud i e extreme winter weather conditions that cause high numbers of livestock deaths The probability of dzud in the winter and spring of 2020 2021 coincided with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID 19 pandemic, which brought about its own set of additional risks Owing to the signs of an impending dzud the government made a resolution to carry out a multisectoral risk assessment, which found that six aimags ( namely, Arkhangai Bayankhongor Govi Altai, Dundgovi Uvurkhangai and Tuv were at a high risk The National Meteorological Agency released a dzud risk map in December 2020 which further reinforced the high risk in these areas.

    According to the Global Climate Risk Index, Pakistan is among the top ten most climate vulnerable countries in the world, with the short and longer term effects of climate change impacting agricultural production in the country Indeed, severe droughts and flooding have damaged crops, livestock and irrigation infrastructure in recent years, contributing to food shortages Information and communication technologies ( have significant potential to transform agriculture by addressing climate related issues in the sector These technologies can support evidence based decision making through the provision of accurate, reliable and up to date data It is in this context that FAO has supported the Government of Pakistan in the drafting of the country’s first E Agriculture Strategy, which aims to improve food security, livelihoods and value chains through the employment of innovative and smart technologies Information that will feed into the Strategy was gathered through consultative workshops that allowed for the identification of existing work in this area and for discussions on how to spark growth in the agriculture sector through the use of ICTs To support the Government of Pakistan in its goal of improving the country’s agriculture sector through the use of ICTs, this Technical Cooperation Programme ( project built the capacities of government staff on various ICTs and supported innovation in the sector through the establishment of an Agriculture Innovation Lab and Agrisurge an Agriculture Innovation Challenge ( that took place in 2020.

    Building Disaster and Climate Resilience of Agriculture Sector to Achieve The SDGs in Asia - TCP/RAS/3703 2023

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) recognizes the need for more resilient food and agriculture systems in its Strategy on Climate Change to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and end hunger and poverty. The agriculture sector is facing increasing risks due to climate change, natural disasters and food chain crises, which put pressure on the sector facing multiple challenges of land use changes, urbanization and market forces. Nearly all FAO Members in the Asia and the Pacific region have a priority area or country outcome on resilience to disasters and climate change, as recognized in their Country Programme Frameworks. However, vulnerability and risk assessment (VRA) in the agriculture sector is still limited globally due to constraints such as the lack of standard tools and capacity and poor management of agriculture disaster damage and loss (D&L). The regional conference on "Strengthening resilient food and agriculture systems" highlighted the urgent need for standard VRA tools for all agricultural subsectors to understand the underlying risk factors, both within and outside the agriculture sector. FAO has developed the methodology for evaluating agriculture disaster D&L, covering all four agricultural sub-sectors (crops, livestock, fisheries/aquaculture and forestry). However, D&L data is often collected on an ad-hoc basis without standardized templates, methods and information management systems. Relevant and good quality data and statistics are critical to measuring the impacts and costs of disasters, anticipating future risks and establishing development goals addressing these risks. All FAO Members in the region of Asia and the Pacific have committed to monitoring and reporting on the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Nationally Determined Contributions to the Paris Agreement and the SDGs. Technical support is required not only to build capacity to apply D&L assessment methodology but also to ensure an institutional approach in strengthening agriculture D&L information management. Such an approach will bring together agriculture sectors and also National Statistics Office, National Disaster Management Agencies and other stakeholders to systematically improve agriculture D&L data, information and management system. To this end, Cambodia, the The Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Mongolia and Timor-Leste requested technical support to apply the FAO D&L methodology.
