For consideration at SBSTA 44 in May 2016, this submission 'concrete opportunities for strengthening resilience, reducing vulnerabilities and increasing the understanding and implementation of adaptation actions'  highlights the importance of adaptation to climate change in the agriculture sectors. These sectors have a fundamental role in ensuring food security through food provision and as the primary means of livelihood and income for more than 2.5 billion people. FAO proposes for the Secretariat to introduce an explicit focus theme on climate change adaptation in the agriculture, livestock, fisheries and forestry sectors to be considered during A-TEP.
