Addressing sustainable crop production priorities in National Adaptation Plans

Year published: 2019

Sustainable crop production intensification faces particular threats from climate change. Although crop production systems are already responding to the challenges it implies, there is a need for better coordination between policymakers, farmers and other intermediaries to provide more timely, relevant technological and knowledge inputs to adapt to medium- and long-term climate change scenarios. Drawing on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) National Adaptation Plans Technical Guidelines and the Supplementary Guidelines Addressing agriculture, forestry and fisheries in National Adaptation Plans, this briefing note identifies the entry points at the national level to plan and budget for adaptation actions for the crop production sub-sector to respond to medium- and long-term climate change threats.
