    Actions to promote climate resilient agrifood systems in Asia and the Pacific region - APRC/22/3
    Thirty-sixth Session of the FAO Regional Conference for Asia and the Pacific (APRC 36)
    Climate change is one of the most important challenges to enhancing food security and nutrition in the region and globally. Resilience to climate change is a crucial feature of sustainable agrifood systems. Strengthening the climate resilience of agrifood systems requires action to anticipate, absorb and accommodate shocks or to manage the impacts or recover from shocks resulting from climate variability and change over time. The impacts of past and ongoing climate change are likely more significant than previously thought. In addition, there are substantial time lags between the development and adoption of new technologies and practices needed to strengthen resilience. Thus, the window available for action to invest in resilience and ensure that the agrifood system is adapted to future potential climate risks is narrow. Action now to anticipate and adapt, but also to address the drivers of future risks from climate change – such as agro-ecosystem degradation, reduced resilience and adaptive capacities, and excess greenhouse gas emissions – will have lasting benefits. This paper provides an overview of climate resilient agrifood systems and the specific challenges in moving towards resilience. The paper also provides guiding approaches and examples to facilitate urgently needed action and responds to requests from Members to highlight practical examples of actions being rolled out by national counterparts, FAO and other partners to promote or support the transition toward climate resilient agrifood systems and requirements for scaling up. The paper and examples provided are also aligned with the proposed vision for the new FAO corporate Strategy on Climate Change.
