Climate-Smart Agriculture for development
There has been a rapid uptake of the term Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) by the international community, national entities and local institutions, in the past years. However, implementing this approach is challenging, partly due to a lack of tools and experience. Climate-smart interventions are highly location-specific and knowledge-intensive. Considerable efforts are required to develop the knowledge and capacities to make CSA a reality.
Climate-Smart Agriculture for Development:
- sustainably increases productivity and income
- strengthens resilience to climate change and variability
- reduces and/or removes greenhouse gas emissions where possible, while enhancing the achievement of national food security
