Agriculture science & innovation for national climate change action plans
Tested technologies and practices for countries to build robust, climate-smart food production systems. Large-scale climate change investment starts in 2020. As your country refines its Nationally Determined Contributions and Adaptation Plans, a range of expertise and technology packages for agriculture is available. They strengthen national action plans to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Climate change is a fact of life in the world’s dry lands. Extreme and unpredictable climate events are more frequent. In these regions, the trend is toward hotter and drier climates, threatening food production and people’s livelihoods. Agricultural research in drylands ecosystems is the laboratory for the world, demonstrating solutions to climate shocks that other regions will experience. Climate-smart technologies and practices from drylands research add value to national climate change plans.
