Agriculture must both contribute more to combating climate change while bracing to overcome its impacts, FAO says in a new report. The report calls for immediate action to be taken now to ward off the risk that one day it may not be possible to feed humanity. Andrea Cattaneo, FAO Senior Economist talks about the latest State of Food and Agriculture report (SOFA), pointing out efficient practices to lower emissions in the various sectors, from agriculture, to fisheries, to forestry, indicating what type of support is needed for smallholders to adapt to climate change. Finally, he underlines the necessity for adaptation and mitigation to go hand in hand.

The video explains how the agriculture sectors are the most vulnerable to climate change and climate variability. This poses a multitude of challenges that must be overcome in the medium and long-term to ensure the lives, livelihoods as well as food security and nutrition of millions of people around the world. The need to adapt to changing climatic conditions is pressing for the poor - particularly women- who depend directly on agriculture for their livelihoods. The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process can catalyse implementation and financing for these agriculture-related adaptation priorities and working towards meeting the goals laid out in the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It also highlights the ongoing work of FAO and UNDP’s “Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag)” Programme.
