Actions to make agriculture sustainable are among the most effective measures to help nations adapt to and mitigate climate change.
FAO helps crisis-affected and at-risk populations to withstand future shocks by embedding resilience-building within humanitarian activities. This means addressing underlying vulnerabilities and reducing the risks faced by rural communities, for
example through promoting and spreading disaster risk reduction and climate resilient production practices.
Building on decades of global experience and expertise, FAO is further integrating climate action into every facet of its work to support countries in facing these impacts. More-resilient farmers, foresters, herders and fishers can deliver transformative change that enhances their livelihoods and shields them from the negative impacts of climate change.
