Climate change and extreme weather events, from heat waves to drought and flooding, are more frequent than ever before. How are the agriculture sectors and farmers expected to adapt?
 
The Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) programme, jointly coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), is working with eleven countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures into national planning and budgeting processes, in support of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement. As the NAP-Ag programme phases out, a new programme called Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through NDCs and NAPs (SCALA) was launched in December 2019 to build on its achievements and continue to support countries through a wide range of activities.
 
This website gives an overview of our work at international and national level, country activities, a knowledge tank, case studies and much more.

Colombia case study: Safeguarding livelihoods and promoting resilience through NAPs

This country case study on Colombia is part of a series that describes the steps taken to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), with a particular emphasis on adaptation in agriculture (including forestry, livestock and fisheries). The series aims to provide national policy makers with valuable information from colleagues and counterparts in Asia, Africa and Latin America who are on the same NAP journey to address the multiple challenges posed by climate change.

Colombia: advancing monitoring and evaluation of adaptation in the agriculture sector

This case study provides an overview and analysis of lessons learned in developing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation in the agriculture sector in Colombia, as part of a broader national adaptation M&E system. It presents the policy and institutional context for adaptation M&E in Colombia; the process, theory and methodology applied for designing the adaptation M&E system and in particular its agriculture components; and the outcome, or the vulnerability and risk analysis, and the indicators, that have been identified for assessing adaptation in the agriculture sector. Finally, lessons learned in terms of challenges, successes and next steps are discussed.
