This briefing note provides practical information on the planning and implementation of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approaches in the agriculture sectors as part of national adaptation planning processes. It presents entry points for mainstreaming EbA throughout the four elements of the National Adaptation Plans (NAP) formulation process, as defined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Least Developed Countries Group (LEG, 2012). The brief describes how planning and implementing EbA in the agriculture sectors as part of the NAPs process can make key linkages between increasing resilience of sustainable agricultural livelihoods and ecosystem management and conservation.
This case study documents insights on gender mainstreaming practices implemented in a large-scale agriculture development project with a climate change adaptation component in Western Province, Zambia. It describes the key gender issues in the project context, as well as the gender mainstreaming practices that are in place and have potential for scaling up.Recommendations for policymakers indicate a way forward to enhance the promotion of gender equality in the context of adaptation to climate change impacts on agriculture.
The importance of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of climate change adaptation has been highlighted at global level, including under the Paris Agreement. Simultaneously, adaptation M&E systems are beginning to emerge at the national level in the context of national planning and budgeting processes. This technical guidance note details how to develop M&E systems for adaptation planning in agriculture sectors.
This Guide for Trainers, based on workshops in nine countries, provides a complete set of materials for use in training sessions on mainstreaming gender in adaptation planning in the agriculture sectors. It is designed for a trainer or team responsible for delivering a training workshop for stakeholders who are involved in adaptation planning and related budgeting processes in agriculture.
The target population of this case study was women, aged 18 to 70 years old, from dairy, livestock, and horticulture production farms that were either family farms or medium-sized farms, and who lived on or up to 50 kilometers from their farms. The team prioritized the voices of women in the study, as previous national agriculture sector climate change adaptation surveys had not exceeded 25 percent female participation.
This country case study on Thailand 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.
The case study series aims to show the links between long-term adaptation planning/NAPs and activities supported by the NAP-Ag programme in the Philippines as well as the resulting impacts. The preparation of this case study is based on a review of country reports and publications, as well as interviews with the NAP-Ag country coordinator and team members, representatives from agencies with CCA responsibilities In the DA, CCC, PAGASA, National Economic and Development Authority and partner organization.
The co-led UNDP and FAO Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) Programme is a multi-year (2015-20), USD 17 million initiative funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The Programme supports 11 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to identify and integrate climate change adaptation measures into relevant national planning and budgeting processes, with a focus on the agricultural sectors. This integration is helping to enhance institutional capacities and processes towards operationalizing climate response strategies in the agricultural sectors. NAP-Ag seeks to foster innovative partnerships between ministries of agriculture, environment, planning and finance, and other national actors. This report highlights the achievements of the programme from 2015 to 2018.

As the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation at the national level is becoming ever more important, a number of countries have built their own M&E frameworks, with others stating their intention do so in the near future. This document provides an overview of the potential steps needed in designing an adaptation M&E framework and plan for the agriculture sectors.
