Guinea has been preparing its third National Communication (NC) and first Biennial Update Report (BUR) related to the Paris Agreement. This case study documents capacity building activities aimed to improve the country’s capacity to prepare these reports and meet its international climate change related reporting requirements.

This case study from Mozambique highlights how a national M&E system for climate change can provide a foundation for meeting global reporting commitments without placing undue burden on countries. The case study focuses on capacity building activities for making the M&E system operational especially to support climate change reporting.

The adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015 paved the way for countries to commit to the international response to climate change, through the transition to a low-emission economy and the development of a climate-resilient future. The Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) is a landmark decision that was reached at the UN Climate Conference (COP23) in November 2017. The KJWA roadmap offered the opportunities to discuss the role of agri-food systems in climate action while considering their vulnerability to climate change and addressing food security.

 The KJWA can play a crucial role in enabling the livestock sector to contribute to climate action by mobilizing knowledge, technology, finance and capacity. It acknowledges the strategic importance of livestock including key areas such as improved soil carbon sequestration in grazed grasslands, improved nutrient use and manure management and improved livestock management systems. The KJWA process offers good opportunities for countries to exchange views and experiences related to the inclusion of livestock in their national climate actions.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) developed this guidance note to assist FFS master trainers and facilitators bring about climate change adaptation in FFS. The guide provides key information on how the climate is changing, and how these changes are impacting the agricultural (crops and livestock), aquaculture and agroforestry systems of smallholder farmers. The note provides guidance to FFS practitioners so that they can better work with individual farmers and communities – using a “climate change lens” – in identifying, testing and adapting new practices that respond to changes and variability in local weather. The guide is not intended as a textbook on climate change but is prepared for easy understanding of basic concepts of climate change to support the interpretation of climate information in specific farming contexts and steps that FFS facilitators “must know” in starting FFS programmes that respond to climate change challenges.

This report presents a structured approach to identify and estimate the market size of specific renewable energy technologies that have the potential to be deployed across specific stages of the agri-food chains. More specifically, the methodology first analyses the countries’ value chains and aggregates them into similar agri-food groups when possible. Once the groupings are defined, the value chains are mapped out and the energy requirements across the different stages of the value chain are defined. Specific renewable energy options are then identified for each value chain based on the energy demand and the process for which energy is required. This structure then feeds into the calculation of the overall market potential by chain and the renewable energy type identified. For this report, the methodology is illustrated with the case of solar energy technologies that have the potential to be deployed across the agriculture value chains in Rwanda.
