This report is intended to provide an overview of the activities implemented by the project GCP/GLO/534/ITA “International Alliance on Climate-Smart Agriculture” - funded by the Ministry of Environment, Land and Sea of Italy and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - which supported the creation and implementation of the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture and its role in advancing knowledge learning, sharing, and partnership building around the CSA approach. The various activities and products described in this report show how the project has helped on filling knowledge and implementation gaps, developing assessments and tools for promotion and implementation of CSA actions.

This manual is designed for a four-day training course on climate-smart agriculture that would take the learner from the basics of climate science to the impacts of climate change and the linkages among climate, agriculture and food security. It contains four modules, each addressing a particular aspect and consisting of several sessions that are held either in plenary, as one group, or in smaller work groups (Table 1). The content and structure of this manual has been developed and tested through fieldwork involving extension agents and agricultural producers in Zambia, Malawi and Viet Nam.
