    Helping Countries to Plan and Implement Climate Action in Agriculture through Improved Capacity and Knowledge - GCP/GLO/890/GER 2022
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Paris Agreement constitutes a landmark achievement in the international response to climate change. Developed and developing countries alike committed in 2015 to doing their part in the transition to a low-emissions and climate-resilient future, as expressed in countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Achieving the long-term climate goals of the Agreement, however, rests upon the enhanced institutional and technical capacity of developing countries to design, implement and track increasingly ambitious mitigation and adaption actions in the agriculture sectors. In the first round of NDCs, countries clearly referred to the need for enhanced capacities to engage stakeholders and facilitate inclusive planning and implementation processes, formulate new strategies, policies and laws, revise existing national policies and plans (including by mainstreaming climate change considerations), monitor and evaluate interventions and track GHG emissions and sinks, as well as adaptation needs and progress. Providing opportunities for exchange among decision-makers, technical experts and implementers can thereby contribute to laying the foundations for successful and ambitious interventions.

    Climate Action for Agriculture: Strengthening the Engagement of Agriculture Sectors to Implement the Climate Change Elements of the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific 2018
    Climate change poses a systemic risk to the achievement of food security in Asia and the Pacific. In acknowledgement of this risk, member countries in the region have highlighted the agriculture and land sectors as key priorities for action under the Paris Agreement (SDG 13) and the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction. Strategic engagement by Agriculture, Livestock, Forestry and Fishery Ministries in these international frameworks will enhance the capacity to finance and scale up measures to strengthen the climate resilience of food and agriculture systems. This paper provides a review of current knowledge on climate change risks to food security in the region and the opportunities and challenges for the agriculture and land sectors to play a more ambitious role in implementing the Paris Agreement and Sendai Framework. It discusses the potential benefits of strong, sector-based action in support of achievement of the SDG targets related to food security, as well as the potential contributions from strategic partnerships involving the private sector, civil society, South-South and triangular cooperation and development partners. The paper cites novel adaptation strategies, such as geographic indications - GI and Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems - GIAHS, that can help farmers increase resilience and provide a buffer against extreme climate events. Member countries are invited to provide guidance on how FAO can best support their efforts to address the needs and priorities of the agriculture sectors under the climate change-related elements of the 2030 Agenda and how FAO, through its Global Strategy and Regional Initiative on Climate Change, can best support member countries to plan and implement sector-specific action to address climate change risks to food security.

    Addressing the 2030 Agenda on Climate Change and Food Security through Climate-Smart Agriculture - TCP/RAS/3604 2020
    Also available in:

    Asia is a dynamic region for agricultural innovation. For decades, farmers have combined traditional practices and local knowledge with modern agricultural techniques, providing a strong foundation for “Climate-smart Agriculture (CSA)” approaches. CSA encompasses a range of established methodologies and technical approaches to address interlinked challenges in the agriculture and land-use sector: meeting demand for food, reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the global food system, and building the resilience of agricultural systems to the impacts of climate change. These priorities are also reflected in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) submitted by countries under the Paris Agreement on Climate Change as part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). While instruments such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Global Environmental Fund (GEF) and various mechanisms under multi-lateral development agencies can support the implementation of NDC priorities, countries have yet to translate broad these into national programmes or investment pi,nes. The potential of CSA approaches to enhance productivity and resilience, and to reduce emissions has been widely documented. However, efforts to systematically and rigorously integrate climate change across CSA’s three pillars are relatively untested in the region. The aim of the project was to support governments in six focus countries to develop national CSA programmes (and/or to integrate CSA priorities into existing plans and programmes), linking CSA investments to NDCs and global climate finance mechanisms, based on regional best practice and knowledge.
