The following video explains the Climate-Smart Agriculture approach including its objectives and why it is needed.

Climate change will hit farmers, herders and fishers the hardest. The Climate-Smart Agriculture approach promotes the development of the technical, policy and investment conditions to achieve sustainable agricultural development for food security under a changing climate.

It seeks to:

  • increase sustainably agricultural productivity and incomes,
  • help adapt and build resilience to climate change impacts and wherever possible,
  • reduces and/or removes greenhouse gases.

To make climate-smart agriculture a reality we need to:

  • expand the evidence base;
  • improve policies;
  • empower local institutions;
  • and combine new financing options.

Let’s make sure our agriculture is productive and sustainable for generations to come.
