Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag): Safeguarding livelihoods and promoting resilience through National Adaptation Plans

This case study chronicles Viet Nam’s experiences in conducting vulnerability and risk assessments (VRAs) of selected agriculture sectors at the national level and a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) to support sectoral adaptation planning, budgeting, and policy formulation. Lessons learned from these endeavors can provide insights for other countries who are seeking, like Viet Nam, to develop an evidence-based and climate risk-informed National Adaptation Plan (NAP) and/or adaptation plans for the agriculture sector.

 

Public expenditure analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agricultural sector: A case study of Uganda

This paper presents a methodology for public expenditure review and analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agricultural sector. It outlines the basic methodological concepts, including the classification of public expenditures in the context of their links to climate change adaptation and mitigation. It also illustrates how such analysis can usefully contribute to policy decision making to better achieve the climate change adaptation and mitigation goals using the case study of Uganda.

Public expenditure analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agriculture sector: a case study of Kenya

This document presents a proposed methodology for public expenditure review and analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agriculture sector (PERCC) and its application to a case study of Kenya. It starts by explaining the basic methodological concepts, classification and labelling of public expenditures that allow for calculating spending in agriculture related to climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Guatemala´s progress in developing a national monitoring and evaluation system for adaptation in the agriculture sector

This country case study on Guatemala 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 on Guatemala aims to show the developing a national monitoring and evaluation system for adaptation in the agriculture sector.

Assessing agroforestry practices and soil and water conservation for climate change adaptation in Kenya: A cost-benefit analysis

The study was carried out under the Integrating Agricultural Sectors into National Adaptation Plans programme, with the aim of capacity building, generating evidence-based results for selecting adaptation options, and informing adaptation policy dialogues on adaptation in agriculture. This study analyses the economic worthiness of adaptation measures currently being practiced by some farmers on their land. It uses cost-benefit analysis (CBA)...

Conservation agriculture for climate change adaptation in Zambia: A cost-benefit analysis

This case study was carried out under the Integrating Agricultural Sectors into National Adaptation Plans programme (NAP-Ag) with the aim of generating empirical evidence about adaptation options in agriculture and to inform adaptation policy dialogues in Zambia. 

Experiences of safeguarding livelihoods and promoting resilience through National Adaptation Plans: Case study Uganda

This case study is part of a series that describes the steps taken to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), with an 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. 

Experiences of integrating agriculture in sectoral and national adaptation planning processes: Case study Viet Nam

This case study on Viet Nam is part of a series that describes the steps taken to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), with an emphasis on adaptation in agriculture (including forestry, livestock and fisheries). This series will provide national policymakers 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 to agriculture sectors and livelihoods. The preparation of this case study is based on extensive reviews of country reports and publications, as well as interviews with the NAP-Ag country coordinators, NAP-Ag team members and representatives from responsible agencies such as the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) of Viet Nam.

Gender mainstreaming and climate resilience in Zambia’s cashew sector: insights for adaptation planners

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.
