La agricultura climáticamente inteligente


This series of technical briefs aims to provide a solid knowledge base for building or strengthening stakeholder capacities on climate-smart agriculture (CSA) and applying CSA practices to five crops that are critical to the global agri-food sector: coffee, cowpea, maize, rice and wheat. These briefing notes reflect the growing recognition of the need to share knowledge, best practices, lessons learned and experiences on CSA. They are intended to support stakeholders to make the transition to more sustainable and resilient crop production systems and, thereby reach targets laid out in the Sustainable Development Goals. It is our intent to reach a broad range of stakeholders with this knowledge, especially as we begin a new era of global dialogue on how to transform our food systems.

This publication describes climate-smart agriculture (CSA) case studies from around the world, showing how the approach is implemented to address challenges related to climate change and agriculture. The case studies operationalize the five action points for CSA implementation: expanding the evidence base for CSA, supporting enabling policy frameworks, strengthening national and local institutions, enhancing funding and financing options, and implementing CSA practices at field level. The publication provides examples of the innovative roles that farmers, researchers, government officials, private sector agents and civil society actors can play to transform food systems and help meet the Sustainable Development Goals; it also demonstrates how these actors can collaborate. The case studies discuss context-specific activities that sustainably increase agricultural productivity and incomes, adapt and build resilience of people and food systems to climate change, and reduce and/or remove greenhouse gas emissions where possible.

This publication analyses of the synergies and trade-offs that can occur within climate-smart agriculture (CSA), more specifically between its three pillars: (i) sustainably increasing productivity and incomes in agriculture, (ii) building resilience of and adapting food and agriculture systems to climate change, (iii) reducing/removing greenhouse gas emissions, where possible. The aim of this analysis is to develop a systematic characterization of possible synergies and trade-offs in CSA, as well as provide a tool to guide CSA practitioners through the assessment of synergies and trade-offs during the design and planning of CSA strategies or interventions. The ultimate objective is to support strategic decisions that enhance synergies and reduce trade-offs to achieve better results for investments in CSA.

Esta publicación destaca varios puntos de entrada para proyectos e iniciativas que involucran y movilizan a los jóvenes. Se centra en el desarrollo de capacidades resilientes al clima, la educación agrícola y la orientación empresarial para promover el empleo rural digno en la agricultura, así como plataformas que crean alianzas y redes para estimular la acción climática y el intercambio de información.


Presenta actividades que han llegado exitosamente a la juventud y que incluyen competiciones tales como ‘hackatones’ y productos educativos representativos que apoyan la acción climática diaria. Los proyectos e iniciativas presentadas aquí también subrayan el rol clave que las alianzas entre gobiernos, sector privado, otras organizaciones internacionales y cooperativas locales tienen a la hora de conseguir resultados de éxito.

To promote climate-smart agriculture (CSA) at global and local level and to transform the agricultural system under climate change, the Italian Ministry of Environment, Land and Sea of Italy (IMELS) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have joined their efforts in a project to scale-up climate-smart agriculture. This brochure was made to briefly explain what is the FAO - IMELS project (commonly named Italian project) and how it contributes to the Climate-Smart Agriculture approach, also due to its two implementations in Botswana and Ecuador.
