Building on FAO’s global study of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the agriculture sectors, the Climate and Environment Division (CBC) is developing a series of regional-level analyses of the NDCs to identify the current commitments, gaps and opportunities for enhancing regional mitigation and adaptation ambitions in the agriculture sectors. This report aims to guide FAO – and other international actors – committed to providing developing countries with the support required for implementing their NDCs and ensuring future commitments are transparent, quantifiable, comparable, verifiable and ambitious. The main objective of this report is to provide a regional synthesis of the current climate change mitigation and adaptation commitments in the agriculture sectors of the Southern Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia (SEECA) region, as set forth in the NDCs, and to identify opportunities for enhancing mitigation and adaptation ambitions, capturing their synergies and leveraging climate finance and international support options in the region. It aims to guide international agencies – and policy makers and practitioners in the region – committed to providing the country support required for accelerating progress on and scaling up NDCs in the agriculture sectors, and ensuring that future commitments are clear, quantifiable, comparable, transparent and ambitious.

This is the first document in a series of case studies by member countries of the Thematic Working Group on Agriculture, Food Security and Land Use (TWG), under the NDC-Partnership. The aim is to present what countries are doing to tackle climate change and implement their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). This case study shares the experience of how Zimbabwe developed a climate-smart agriculture (CSA) manual aimed for university and professional level agricultural education, which directly contributes to the achievement of their NDC.

The Koronivia joint work (KJWA) on agriculture is a decision that was reached at the UN climate conference (COP23) in November 2018, officially acknowledging the significance of the agriculture sectors in adapting to and mitigating climate change. The paragraph 2 of the KJWA decision provides a list of initial elements on which Parties were invited to submit their views. Recognizing that KJWA does not mandate the UNFCCC secretariat to produce a synthesis of submissions made, a number of Parties attending the Dialogue suggested that FAO might provide a factual summary of the submissions. The analysis takes into consideration the 21 KJWA submissions made by Parties and 27 by observers and published by 20th of May 2018 on the UNFCCC submission portal, as well as the African Group of Negotiators (AGN) and Least Developed Countries (LDC) group submissions.

The 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) concluded with a landmark decision recognizing the role of agriculture in tackling climate change, known as the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA). It requests the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) to jointly address issues related to agriculture.

FAO produced this review in order to provide its member countries and other stakeholders with relevant background and knowledge related to the KJWA.  This document introduces the KJWA decision and further developments resulting from the 48th sessions of the subsidiary bodies, provides a brief overview of the UNFCCC, and describes how the Convention addresses agriculture.
