The climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept reflects
an ambition to improve the integration of agriculture
development and climate responsiveness. It aims to achieve
food security and broader development goals under a
changing climate and increasing food demand. CSA initiatives
sustainably increase productivity, enhance resilience, and
reduce/remove greenhouse gases (GHGs), and require
planning to address tradeoffs and synergies between these
three pillars: productivity, adaptation, and mitigation [1].
The priorities of different countries and stakeholders are
reflected to achieve more efficient, effective, and equitable
food systems that address challenges in environmental, social,
and economic dimensions across productive landscapes.
While the concept is new, and still evolving, many of the
practices that make up CSA already exist worldwide and are
used by farmers to cope with various production risks [2].
Mainstreaming CSA requires critical stocktaking of ongoing
and promising practices for the future, and of institutional
and financial enablers for CSA adoption. This country profile
provides a snapshot of a developing baseline created to initiate
discussion, both within countries and globally, about entry
points for investing in CSA at scale.
