The Regional Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in the Agriculture Sector and Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) was developed under the leadership of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which identified the need for a common tool to foster the collaboration and coordination among its member states with regards to DRM and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in the agriculture sector.

Moreover, the Strategy seeks to contribute to the CELAC Plan for Food and Nutrition Security and the Eradication of Hunger 2025 (FNS-CELAC Plan) which considers in its fourth pillar the stable production and timely attention to disasters of socio-natural origin that may affect the availability of food; and to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

Migration is a growing and complex global phenomenon. The links between migration, agriculture and climate change are complex. While the impacts of climate change on agriculture and food security are relatively well established, the cascading effects of climate change on migration and its consequences for agriculture have not been adequately assessed and addressed.

Tracking adaptation progress at country level is increasingly recognized as an important element of climate change adaptation. The Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, stresses the need to monitor and learn from adaptation actions, and recommends periodical stocktaking of the overall progress towards climate change adaptation.

Building on FAO’s global study of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the agriculture sectors, the Climate and Environment Division (CBC) is developing a series of regional-level analyses of the NDCs to identify the current commitments, gaps and opportunities for enhancing regional mitigation and adaptation ambitions in the agriculture sectors.  This report aims to guide FAO – and other international actors – committed to providing developing countries with the support required for implementing their NDCs and ensuring future commitments are transparent, quantifiable, comparable, verifiable and ambitious.

Livestock are key to food security: Meat, milk and eggs provide 34% of the protein consumed globally as well as essential micronutrients such as vitamin B12, A, iron, zinc, calcium and riboflavin. But their contribution to food security and nutrition goes well beyond that, and includes a range of other goods and services, such as animal manure and traction. Hundreds of millions of vulnerable people rely on livestock in a changing climate, because of animals’ ability to adapt to marginal conditions and withstand climate shocks.
Livestock products are also responsible for more greenhouse gases emissions than most other food sources. Emissions are caused by feed production, enteric fermentation, animal waste and landuse change.
