Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS) are landscapes of aesthetic beauty that combine agricultural biodiversity, resilient ecosystems and cultural heritage. GIAHS recognizes the Kihambas of Mt. Kilimanjaro as unique agricultural sites, a nature-based solution that protects biodiversity and ensures food security in a changing climate.

In the video we meet some of the farmers who have lived on the land for generations, protecting the environment while growing enough food to feed their families and to sell. FAO has provided support through training in complementary agricultural practices to sustainably increase productivity, but the communities are starting to face difficulties due to the growing population and the need for more land.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization is supporting ten projects in countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and South America to lay the groundwork for climate-resilient adaptation initiatives, funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF)’s Readiness Programme.  The projects - in Burkina Faso, Congo, Equatorial Guinea (two projects), Guyana, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Macedonia, and Saint Kitts and Nevis – will cover restoring degraded lands and forests, coping with water scarcity, developing a sustainable and low-emission livestock sector, applying Climate-Smart Agriculture methods, and disaster risk reduction for climate-resilient rural livelihoods.

Men and women often have different roles and responsibilities in society and therefore experience climate change impacts in different ways. This video shows what Colombia, Uganda and Viet Nam are doing to develop gender-responsive national adaptation plans for the agriculture sectors. This country-driven work is carried out under a global programme known as Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag), jointly coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
