Dear members of the HLPE team


Attached you will find a "joint submission of organisations sharing concerns over climate-smart agriculture". This document has been written and is endorsed by more than 50 international and national organisations (see list below).

We would like to bring to your attention to elements that address  the second question you asked us to answer: “Have an appropriate range of innovative approaches been identified and documented in the draft? If there are key gaps in coverage of approaches, what are these and how would they be appropriately incorporated in the draft? Does the draft illustrate correctly the contributions of these approaches to FSN and sustainable development?”.

See attached document.
