Making climate-sensitive investments in agriculture – Approaches, tools and selected experiences
The first edition of this guidance document entitled ‘Incorporating climate change considerations into agricultural investment programmes: a guidance document’ was published in 2012. Since then, considerable progress has been made towards strengthening global commitments to tackle climate change. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been adopted by world leaders, and 179 countries have put forward Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) – part of the global process coordinated by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Many countries are now integrating climate change adaptation into national development planning, such as National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs). There has also been a shift in both the levels and scope of global climate finance.
Fund (GCF) has become the world’s largest dedicated climate fund, helping developing countries to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to enhance their ability to respond to climate change.
