Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans (SCALA) 

Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans (SCALA)
Outcomes

SCALA supports countries to translate agriculture and land use priorities laid out in their NDCs and/or NAPs into action through three inter-related outcomes. 

 

  1. Identify and appraise transformative climate actions required on land-use and agriculture.
    NDCs and NAPs are used as entry points to foster multi-stakeholder dialogues to assess climate actions with transformative potential and build consensus for systems-level assessments that strengthen the evidence base for implementation.

  2. Integrate land-use and agriculture priorities into planning, budgeting and monitoring
    A whole-of-government approach is promoted in which all relevant stakeholders collaborate to improve the enabling environment and governance arrangements for the planning, budgeting and monitoring of transformative climate actions.

  3. Engage private sector in climate action
    Barriers are addressed to catalyze private investment through public policy instruments and other climate investment funds and innovative technological and financial tools are promoted.

Targeted activities under each of these outcomes aim to address barriers to climate action related to insufficient coordination and capacity, gender inequality and social exclusion, inadequate investment and private sector engagement as well as inadequate information systems, among others.
