Given the imminent challenges climate change poses for poverty reduction and sustainable development, the need for coherent and integrated climate risk management approaches that address the underlying causes of vulnerability – and that simultaneously increase the ability of the rural poor to adapt to and cope with natural hazards - has never been more pressing.

Climate change is accelerating the frequency and intensity of extreme natural hazards and those living in rural areas are disproportionately affected. 

Life in high-risk geographical locations, heavy reliance on agriculture and natural resources, and limited coping capacity as a result of low income, lack of savings, weak social networks, low asset bases are all contributing factors. Protecting poor and vulnerable small-scale producers from the negative impacts of climate risks is necessary to effectively carry out FAO’s strategic objectives and achieve Sustainable Development Goals 1 (ending poverty) and 2 (zero hunger). As shown in this report, managing climate risks through social protection is a valid and effective investment to safeguard the livelihoods of small-scale producers and to strengthen their essential role in ensuring food security across the globe.

This paper identifies potential “climate action-sustainable development pathways” spanning 17 major agricultural climate action categories and the 17 SDG targets. The aim of this mapping exercise is to explore the extent to which the two agendas are aligned for the prioritization of those climate actions that have the potential to co-deliver on the Paris Agreement and 2030 Agenda.

This case study investigates Morocco’s approach to preserve fragile argan ecosystems affected by climate change, while promoting economic growth. The study brings practical examples of this strategy from the project “Development of Argan orchards in Degraded Environment (DARED)”, financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) through the GCF accredited entity Agency for Agricultural Development (ADA).

Mapping interlinkages, synergies and trade-offs and guidelines for integrated implementation

This paper represents a first step in defining specific ways in which climate-smart agriculture can support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and nationally determined contribution objectives. Next steps may include: developing a methodology to assess context-specific synergies and trade-offs between CSA actions and SDG targets, as well as identifying the relationships between CSA and SDG indicators.
