Briefing note: National Adaptation Plan (NAP) and nationally determined contributions (NDC) governance

This brief explains the relevance of National Adaptation Plan (NAP) and nationally determined contribution (NDC) governance to SCALA, outlines proposed interventions to address this topic in the SCALA country work plans and summarizes useful resources as well as support available from the global team. NDCs  and  NAPs  are  the  starting  point  under  SCALA  for  supporting  participant  countries  in translating their climate commitments into actionable and transformative climate action in the land-use and agriculture sectors.

Briefing note: Private sector engagement

This brief explains the relevance of private sector engagement to SCALA, outlines proposed interventions to address this topic in the SCALA country work plans and summarizes useful resources as well as support available from the global team.

Briefing note: Gender and social inclusion

This brief explains the relevance of gender equality and social inclusion to SCALA, outlines proposed interventions to address this topic in the SCALA country work plans and summarizes useful resources as well as support available from the global team. Addressing the gender equality and social inclusion (GSI) gap in NDCs and NAPs calls for inclusive, whole-of-government  climate  action  in  land-use  and  agriculture.

Briefing note: Transparency, Monitoring, Reporting, Verification (MRV) and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E)

This brief explains the context and recommended approach to designing work under the SCALA programme Activity 2.1.2: Improve/develop measuring, reporting and verification(MRV) and (monitoring and evaluation) M&E systems at national and/or sectoral level for monitoring and reporting on the UNFCCC, CBD, SFDRR and SDGs in regard to mitigation and/or adaptation in land-use and agriculture, including collection of gender disaggregated data.

Briefing note: Assessments at systems level to identify and appraise climate risks and transformative action

This  brief  provides  an  overview  of  systems-level  assessments  and  what  they  might  entail  under  the SCALA programme.  It discusses  the  methodologies,  tools  and  resources  that  can  be  applied  in  undertaking  these  assessments through Activity 1.1.2 of the programme, which in turn can inform the design and implementation of activities under  Outcomes  2.1  and  3.1.

Briefing note: Transformative climate action

This brief explains the context of the SCALA programme’s approach to transformational adaptation, which refers to a change in the fundamental attributes of a socioecological system in  anticipation  of  climate change and its impacts, in contrast to incremental  adaptation, which is adaptation that maintains the essence and integrity of a system or process at a given scale.
