Climate-Smart Agriculture

Global Environment Facility

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) provides funding for climate change mitigation through its Climate Change Strategy, as well as for climate change adaptation through its Special Climate Change Adaptation Fund and Least Developed Countries Fund. All three funds offer opportunities for countries to access finance to support the transition to climate-smart food and agricultural systems. FAO is already implementing a number of CSA projects funded by GEF and continues its efforts to support countries in mobilizing GEF funding for the implementation of CSA. Ongoing GEF projects include:

  • Sustainable Land Management and Climate Friendly Agriculture (Turkey)
  • Strengthening the Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change in the Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector of Chile.
  • Community-based Climate Resilient Fisheries and Aquaculture Development in Bangladesh.
  • Climate Change Adaptation in the Eastern Caribbean Fisheries Sector
  • Promotion of climate-smart livestock management integrating reversion of land degradation and reduction of desertification risks in vulnerable provinces (Ecuador).
