Climate-smart agriculture is a way to achieve short-and-long-term agricultural development priorities in the face of climate change and serves as a bridge to other development priorities. It seeks to support countries and other actors in securing the necessary policy, technical and financial conditions to enable them to:

  • Sustainably increase agricultural productivity and incomes in order to meet national food security and development goals
  • Build resilience and the capacity of agricultural and food systems to adapt to climate change;
  • Seek opportunities to mitigate emissions of greenhouse gases and increase carbon sequestration.

These three conditions (food security, adaptation and mitigation) are referred to as the “triple win” of climate-smart agriculture.
