Climate-Smart Agriculture

Technical reports

The main objective of this training module is to help project designers and implementers develop their capacity to integrate gender issues in CSA projects and programs. As a result of the training, learners are expected to have a better understanding of the gender roles in CSA and their critical impact on project outcomes and sustainability. The training will also provide different methods and tools enabling learners to identify, formulate, implement, monitor, and evaluate gender-responsive actions and practices in CSA development projects.  

This publication is a compilation of ten successful youth-focused or youth-led initiatives in agriculture that address the impacts of climate change. The highlighted initiatives can serve as a promotional tool for youth networks, practitioners and programme managers who are interested in supporting youth in the agriculture sectors under a changing climate. 

The main objective of this report is to review the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) frameworks, tools and guidance documents that are available for Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA), and in particular for objective (“pillar”) two on adaptation and resilience. The report is a literature review and does not propose a new methodology. It is not an exhaustive list, but summarises the main M&E frameworks.

This training booklet contains core information from the training, including but not limited to: learning objectives, learning materials, and key CSA Sourcebook Chapters. The training booklet also provides useful links to additional learning resources, as well as key FAO publications for future reference.   

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.
