Using climate services in adaptation planning for the agriculture sectors

This brief provides an overview of climate services (CS) and how they can be used to assess risk and optimise adaptation decision-making in the agriculture sectors.1 It highlights entry points to integrate CS across all elements of adaptation planning, while acknowledging the challenges and limitations of using CS, particularly in Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The brief also discusses key considerations in using climate services for planning and provides technical guidance on dealing with the uncertainty and confidence of climate projections.

UNDP Issues Brief on Resilient Food and Agriculture

As climate change continues to drive food insecurity, addressing the risks of climate change across the value chain – especially agricultural products that are important to food and nutrition security – will yield significant adaptation benefits to vulnerable small producers and rural communities at large. This will support global efforts to end hunger and poverty, build more effective farming practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and accelerate the ambition of Nationally Determined Contributions to the Paris Agreement.
