The GreeNTD is based on a socio-ecological territorial development methodology that supports a wide stakeholder’s engagement in seeking progressive territorial consensus through a holistic, bottom-up and negotiated vision. The final objective is to get an agreed, socially legitimate and sustainable use and management of natural resources whilst safeguarding the ecosystem, current and future. The proposed methods and tools are thought to facilitate the potential users in the implementation of the approach and to facilitate the application of the agreement. The toolkit presents a set of tools to be used in various steps of the territorial development interventions within the GreeNTD framework, providing practical examples to support their implementation. It is intended to facilitate the implementation of a "learning by doing" process, designed by a progressive adoption of the proposed tools, depending on the context, resources and the level of complexity to deal. The toolkit does not intend to provide narrow steps to be followed as a recipe; it rather proposes a set of various methodological options and examples of tools that can support the process, related to its various key aspects.

Policy Guidance Note 5: Extreme climate events are increasing in frequency and intensity, threatening the agriculture sectors and the livelihoods they support. By impacting on agro-ecosystems, climate change and variability have socio-economic implications on the livelihoods and food security and nutrition of the most vulnerable. On the other hand, the agriculture sectors are also significant greenhouse gas emitters. This note aims to serve as orientation material for policy advisors and policymakers confronted with the challenge of ensuring food security and nutrition in the face of climate change and extreme climate events.

This document was produced in the frame of the FAO led Work Package no. 4 of the ClimAfrica project, funded by the European Commission. It provides an improved understanding of the current dynamics of major food production systems in Africa (up to 2020) and develop a set of conditional vulnerability scenarios based on cur-rent agricultural and socio-economic trends to be used to assess impactsunder the ClimAfrica project. The methodological approach is based on the FAO methodology for framework for land evaluation and agro-ecological zoning to develop scenarios of major production systems in sub-Saharan Africa.

Climate change will have severe negative effects on agriculture and food security. Low-income countries and poor farmers are particularly at risk. At the same time, agriculture is a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Agriculture has to both adapt to climate change and contribute to mitigation. This requires changes in agricultural practices as well as improvements in livelihood options for poor farm households. Changes in the broader food system are also needed, including reductions in food waste and losses and changes in dietary patterns to reduce their carbon footprint.
