This video explains the climate-smart agriculture approach including its objectives and why it is needed. The Climate-smart agriculture approach promotes the development of the technical, policy and investment conditions to achieve sustainable agricultural development for food security under a changing climate.

This video shows how men and women farmers and other decision makers have applied the climate-smart agriculture approach in practice. UNFAO shares project results from Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, Nicaragua and Vietnam. Kenyan smallholder farmers have addressed climate change through integrated livestock systems and improved their incomes. In Nicaragua the Ecosystem approach has reduced environmental degradation of mangroves and reduced the climate vulnerability of communities. FAO’s work with partner countries in Asia and Africa has generated solutions helping decision makers overcome barriers in the sustainable adoption of climate-smart agriculture. Looking to the future, it won’t be easy to feed the world in a changing climate, and farmers will not be able to do it alone. Making food production climate-smart requires: investments in agriculture, knowledge of locally suitable practices and harmonized policies.

The FAOSTAT Emissions Database contains greenhouse gas estimates from Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use, produced by FAO. The video was launched on the occasion of the FAO-IPCC-IFAD expert meeting: Emerging activities to combat climate change – use of FAO data and IPCC GHG inventory guidelines for agriculture and land use, held in Rome on November 13-14 2014.

Gender dimensions of adopting climate-smart aquaculture – Miranda Morgan, Research Programme on Aquatic Agriculture Systems, CGIAR. Morgan introduces a study that World Fish conducted focusing on 2 small-holder aquaculture interventions at 4 sites, which are gender-appropriate and climate-smart: Cage aquaculture and Pond polyculture. Morgan outlines climate-change context in Bangladesh at the intervention site. She argues that vulnerability and virtuous often the underlying rationales for gendered interventions. She defines: - ‘vulnerability’ as women being more vulnerable to malnutrition and having constraints (such as mobility); and - ‘virtuous’ as women being responsible for household nutrition and home-gardens, certain interventions are adaptive to women’s constraints.
She further argues that local configurations of power affect women’s vulnerability and virtue, and need to be taken into account. 

Findings showed that there were gender-related factors that affected innovation, dissemination and uptake of these climate-smart innovations. Gender power differentials appeared to be at play in different contexts, within households, within communities, and with actors outside of the community.
