“Working together to ensure that the world’s agriculture can sustainably feed and nourish humanity and secure livelihoods in the face of a changing climate”

GACSA is an inclusive, voluntary and action-oriented multi-stakeholder platform on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA). Our vision is to improve food security, nutrition and resilience in the face of climate change. GACSA aims to catalyze and help create transformational partnerships to encourage actions that reflect an integrated approach to the three pillars of CSA. 

VISION

Context-specific priorities and solutions need to be aligned with national and regional policies and priorities, including the diversity in type and scale of agricultural activity, as well as evaluating the potential synergies and trade-offs and net benefits.

 

The Alliance is uniquely positioned to facilitate transformational partnerships, and its value addition lies in the following core action-oriented functions:

Convening – bringing people and institutions together to generate or scale up action at global, regional, and national levels.

Connecting – breaking down silos, building synergies, bridging the knowledge-uptake gap, fostering integrated approaches, and brokering partnerships to ensure that actions are taken.

Communicating – fostering co-learning, co-creation of knowledge and knowledge-sharing to facilitate the development of bankable sound projects.

 

ASPIRATIONAL OUTCOMES

 

The Alliance recognizes the urgent need to act at scale and to contribute towards three aspirational outcomes:

      I.        Sustainable and equitable increases in agricultural productivity and incomes;

     II.        Greater resilience of food systems and farming livelihoods;

Reduction and/or removal of greenhouse gas emissions associated with agriculture (including the relationship between agriculture and ecosystems), where possible
