KEY IMPACTS

National Adaptation Plans – Climate-Smart Agriculture:

 

Agriculture is increasingly part of national processes to develop National Adaptation Plans and the climate-smart approach is embedded in this medium to long-term planning process.

 

In Malawi, climate change adaptation was mainstreamed in the new National Agriculture Policy and in the National Agriculture Investment Plan.

 

In Uganda capacities were enhanced at institutional ministry level and the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries were supported to finalise the National Adaptation Plan for the Agriculture sector.

 

Contributed to FAO’s flagship work on integrating agriculture into National Adaptation Plans supporting 7 global and regional programmes, 10 national programmes, including 10 LDCs and 22 developing countries.

 

Even if the world succeeds in cutting greenhouse gas emissions under the Paris Agreement and in limiting climate change, some impacts on vulnerable communities are inevitable.

 

In Uganda, for example, agriculture accounts for 24 percent of gross domestic product. However, changes in temperatures are bringing more frequent and longer-lasting droughts, killing more cattle and hitting crop production. Uganda estimates the cost of climate change adaptation could reach USD 644 million by 2025. However, the cost of inaction will be around USD 3.1 to 5.9 billion by 2025, making it clear that climate change adaptation is crucial to secure a sound economic future.

 

FAO directly supports and implements adaptation actions on the ground in Uganda and other nations, but it also works at a policy and training level, through a global support programme to assist countries in making their agricultural sectors more resilient. This includes planning and budgeting of adaptation actions and ensuring that climate-smart agriculture is fully embedded in agricultural development and investment planning – including through training the next generation of change-makers.
