This guideline is an instructive tool that highlights key climate change and agricultural risks in the United Republic of Tanzania and provides information on mainstreaming climate change adaptation and mitigation objectives within rural development. It provides guidance on how this could best be achieved through the implementation of the CSA approach, in line with other policies related to agriculture sectors, food and nutrition security, and climate change. Its goal is thus primarily to inform on the implementation of the CSA framework and to describe the CSA practices and technologies best suited for different regions and agro–climatic zones of the country.

This infographic booklet shows what the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), through both the REDD+/National Forest Monitoring teams and Mitigating Agriculture GHG Emissions Towards Wider Opportunities (MAGHG-2) project under the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme, provides to its member countries regarding the Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) framework. It also presents experiences on the ground with examples from activities in Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, and highlights useful resources.

This practice brief explains how Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) practices can be designed and implemented in a way that takes into account the differences and inequalities between men and women. This brief was prepared by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) for the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture (GACSA).

The pilot projects of the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme of FAO in Kenya and the United Republic of Tanzania have integrated climate-smart agriculture (CSA) into development programmes. The objective of the pilot projects was to show that smallholder farmers can improve their livelihoods and increase their productivity and contribute to climate change mitigation at the same time. Farmers who participated in the MICCA pilot projects reported that the main benefits of CSA were higher yields, greater farm income and increased food availability. This is an indication that smallholder farmers can be an effective part of the response to climate change and make a meaningful contribution to reducing GHG emissions.
