CSA Alliances, Networks and Processes

Climate Smart Agriculture is context specific and interventions need to be determined through the social, economic and environmental conditions were it will be applied.

Over the last years, different multi-stakeholder alliances and platforms have been established at the national, regional and global levels to support the dissemination and implementation of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA).

They have been established based on bottom-up, inclusive, independent and voluntary processes, with specific objectives, functioning and institutional setting. The emergence of CSA alliances and platforms worldwide is a positive and strong signal to the international community on the willingness of all stakeholders, at various levels of action, to tackle the climate challenges in the agricultural sectors, based on joint efforts and context-specific approaches.

The representatives of the regional CSA alliances and platforms have welcomed the suggestion from the GACSA Facilitation Unit to gather during the GACSA Annual Forum, to start an open and respectful dialogue amongst alliances and platforms, to share experiences, challenges and concerns, and to discuss about potential way forward in building cooperation amongst CSA alliances/platforms.

GACSA Annual Forum brought together the various CSA alliances / platforms / networks from across the world to build a bottom-up and constructive dialogue, fostering inclusiveness and collective action for scaling up CSA at all levels.
