  • What exists and has been achieved so far?The government of Colombia, in head of the National Planning Department,developed a policy document in which the importance of climate change in colombian context is supported and the impacts evidenced mainly in the last decade, in order to quote the need to organize not only the government sector but all sectors to work in reducing the vulnerability and strengthening themselves towards more resilient conditions. The establishment of a national system of climate change SISCLIMA is proposed, where all sectors have a role but structured in order to avoid doubling efforts but to do coordinated activities that in the end will generated along with side effects a more significant impact in order to decrease climate change impacts through the adaptation measures, the knowledge increase towards impacts and how to face them, and being more conscious of the effects that our actions as sectors put in the environment. (this is in color green because the policy document does exist, although the national system has not been created yet)The idea of the PNACC is to provide to local governments the tools to include in their development plans climate change as one of their goals during the period of governance, so the municipality be able to have a budget destined to mitigate and face the impacts of climate change in their territory. (it is in yellow because it is in process, there has been some advances so far)The EIECC has as purpose to provide information related to the impacts that changes in climate have in the economy, in order to make the decision makers sensitive/conscious that it is better to invest now in preventing those impacts than face them once they occur. Also, the results of this study are meant to be an input for sectoral adaptation plans elaboration, but this is not clear in the agricultural sector case. (this is in yellow because although it has results so far the use of this inputs has not been implemented yet)The Adaptation Plan for agricultural sector is has a been a great work among the ministry of agriculture and the DNP in order to create a document in which the agricultural sector finds guidelines and tools on how be able to face the impacts of changes in climate. However, the process is in a stand by due to the void of a financial mechanism that ensures its implementation. (it is in orange because it is finished but not implemented)
  • What’s needed now?
  • What outcomes from this workshop are most important, given your national priorities? What do you hope to get out of this learning event ?

    1. 1. COLOMBIA DEISSY MARTINEZ BARÓN Science officer, CCAFS Latin America National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and agriculture: A learning workshop CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) 13 - 14 November 2013, Warsaw, Poland
    2. 2. Country status in terms of National Adaptation plans • Policy document which creates the legal base to create the National System of Climate Change. • Development Plan 2010-2014: sectoral strategies for climate change • National Adaptation Plan of Climate Change (PNACC): theoretical framework, guidelines and protocols for local governments. • Study of economic impacts of climate change (EIECC) • Adaptation Plan for Agricultural sector
    3. 3. Barriers and successes Top two barriers/constraints • Financial planning to implement the plans • Articulation among government institutions/commitment of private sector Top 2 successes • Making relevant climate change issues into agricultural sector policy (law) • Inclusion of economics in the analysis of climate change impacts in the government
    4. 4. Next steps  Implementation of SISCLIMA  Financial plan to implement the Adaptation Plan for Agricultural Sector  Use EIECC as a scientific tool for both PNACC and Adaptation plan of the Agricultural sector and others  Increase support to local governments to implement in their development plans the topic of climate changes based on their local realities.  Include studies from technical cooperation with IDB in sectoral adaptation plans and MADR-CIAT agreement to contribute to agricultural sector adaptation plan.
    5. 5. Expectations  To learn from the experiences from other countries from different regions of the world.  To generate south–south cooperation bonds with other countries in order to share specific learning experiences.  Determine how CCAFS could support the development of the adaptation process in Latin America.
