Climate Smart Agriculture: Resilience, Food Security, Mitigation and Adaptation; 
Avoiding trade-offs, creating synergies in a connected world

297

Published on

This presentation shows explains what climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is and answers 3 questions:
1. Climate smart agriculture: is this the right direction to follow?
2. What is the common understanding of both adaptation and mitigation efforts, can synergies support food security?
3. What choices, investments, conditions to be made by farmers and other stakeholders to mobilize and maximize benefits from available climate smart practices and climate finance?

Climate Smart Agriculture: Resilience, Food Security, Mitigation and Adaptation; 
Avoiding trade-offs, creating synergies in a connected world

  1. 1. Climate Smart Agriculture: Resilience, Food Security, Mitigation and Adaptation Avoiding trade-offs, creating synergies in a connected world
  2. 2. CLIMATE CHANGE Threat? Opportunity? 2
  3. 3. CLIMATE CHANGE AND AGRICULTURE  Negative impacts of climate change on agricultural production  Potential to contribute to mitigation 3
  4. 4. CLIMATE SMART AGRICULTURE  To reconcile three important priorities and challenges of mankind:  Sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes  Adapting and building resilience to climate change  Reducing and /or removing greenhouse gases emissions, where possible FAO, 2010. Hague Conference on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change. 4
  5. 5. Objectives of the session  Climate smart agriculture: is this the right direction to follow?  Common understanding of both adaptation and mitigation efforts, synergies can support food security  What choices, investments, conditions to be made by farmers and other stakeholders to mobilize and maximize benefits from available climate smart practices and climate finance? 5
  6. 6. 6
  7. 7. Discussion  What are the key challenges (barriers and opportunities) for farmers and other rural stakeholders for joint mitigation and adaptation at farm level ?  How can climate finance be streamlined for the climate smart investments at the farm level?  Who is responsible for embedded emissions, and how could a climate finance regime incentivize better climate-proofing of agriculture? 7
