Capacity Development on Climate Change
FAOs CD framework is an analytical tool that guides the analysis of situations in terms of existing capacities and capacity development interventions. The framework is based on the enhancement of technical and functional capacities, which are prerequisites to achieving the three global goals of FAO Members, across three dimensions: individual, organizational and the enabling environment.
A substantial part of FAO's work on climate change is geared to enhance the capacities of Member States vulnerable to climate change to confront the impacts of climate variability and change on agriculture. This process is defined as capacity development on climate change.
