  3. 3. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND • Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) as defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is an approach that addresses specific elements: Adaptation, Mitigation and Food Security to the adverse impacts of climate change and achieves sustainable development goals. • Impacts of climate change is already felt in agriculture, food security, water resources and eco-system, public health and infrastructure climate related disasters. • Adaptation to CC won’t stop but will reduce the impacts • The process of developing the national CSA Strategic Framework by DAFF started in 2015. • The framework will guide the implementation and upscaling of best CSA practices throughout South Africa (including extension and farmers). 3
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND cont……. • South Africa’s CSA Strategic Framework highlights the importance of CSA mainstreaming w.r.t gender, youth and rural communities, etc • The idea is to change behaviours and address concerns, empower communities for effective decision making through adoption of good principles and practices • It is critical to involve all role players in decision-making processes, policies and laws, institutions, technologies, standards, planning frameworks and actions, and this Framework ensure that these continue to be part of the agenda in subsequent decision-making processes, implementation and revision. • The framework is also aligned to Climate Change Response Strategy, CCSP, CCAMP and relevant DAFF policies 4
  5. 5. SA CSA STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK: OVERVIEW • Wider consultations was conducted through meetings, National and Provincial Workshops to solicit inputs and to discuss the situational analysis report which informed the development of the CSA Strategic Framework. • These consolidated inputs into the CSA Strategic Framework included inputs from the agriculture, forestry and fisheries sector stakeholders as well as government departments, PDAs, research and academic institutions, organised labour, SOEs,NGOs, etc. 5
  6. 6. AIM AND OBJECTIVES OF CSA FRAMEWORK Aim •The main Aim is to create a socially inclusive and sustainable agricultural, forestry, fisheries and natural resource management underpinned by increased productivity for national food security and nutrition Objectives •To guide actions for the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries sector, all levels of government, investors and development partners on mainstreaming CSA into agriculture, forestry and fisheries plans, programmes and projects. •Contribute to increasing productivity and growth of agricultural, forestry and fisheries related value chains with nutrition and gender considerations. 6
  7. 7. AIM AND OBJECTIVES continue…….. • Enhance resilience to climatic and weather shocks on the social, environmental, and economic aspects of agriculture, forestry and fisheries production and food systems. • Contribute to low carbon development through efficient use of agricultural, agribusiness, forestry and fisheries resources to reduce national emission intensity in the DAFF production and food systems. • Strengthen governance and institutional coordination for effective implementation of the Climate Smart Agriculture Framework Programme at the national, provincial and local levels. 7

  10. 10. MONITORING AND EVALUATION(M&E) • M&E will be key drivers of CSA mainstreaming into the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Sectors. • M&E systems are critical for results-oriented and suitable for internal and external reporting on progress made in CSA integration, including identification of relevant indicators that contain consistent information for all the main subthemes. • A more comprehensive and comparable CSA in the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Programme reporting system should contain consistent information for all the main sub-themes and that goes beyond mere funding allocation and expenditure data. • It is critical to involve ALL stakeholders in the development of the M&E system with a view to agreeing on a reporting system to be applied by all stakeholder. 10
  11. 11. IMPLEMENTATION OF CSA • It is critical to involve all stakeholders & role players from the onset and ensure CSA mainstreaming at all levels. • This is to ensure successful implementation nationally, provisionally and locally. • It is also important to learn from others and encourage partnership and collaboration at various levels including regional and international. • Strong partnerships between governments and private sectors need to be encouraged. 11
  12. 12. IMPLEMENTATION COORDINATING FRAMEWORK
  13. 13. 13 CONCLUSION • Climate change is a cross-cutting issue and affects us ALL. • It is the responsibility of all of us to ensure that we tackle climate change by adopting climate-smart practices and approaches that will promote sustainable agriculture and assist us as a country to achieve sustainable development and ensure food security. • The development of CSA strategic frameworks should enable us to achieve this objective. • CSA mainstreaming is critical to change behaviours and perceptions, and should integrate indigenous knowledge systems • In general the framework emphasis that the goal of promoting effective adaptive responses and increasing adaptive capacity to reduce vulnerability and increase overall resillience of agricultural and food systems.
