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.

National Adaptation Plans in focus: lessons from Tanzania

This NAP in focus country briefing on the process to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans in Tanzania considers firstly the country context and the climate change risks. The briefing highlights how Tanzania has been working closely with international partners alongside the Ministries for Agriculture; Livestock and Fisheries; Energy and Minerals; Finance and Planning; Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children; Natural Resources and Tourism; Water and Irrigation; corresponding Ministries from Zanzibar, as well as the Tanzania Meteorological Agency and National Environment Management Council, to conduct a consultative NAP process.

National Adaptation Plans – An entry point for ecosystem-based adaptation

This briefing note provides practical information on the planning and implementation of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approaches in the agriculture sectors as part of national adaptation planning processes. It presents entry points for mainstreaming EbA throughout the four elements of the National Adaptation Plans (NAP) formulation process, as defined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Least Developed Countries Group (LEG, 2012). The brief describes how planning and implementing EbA in the agriculture sectors as part of the NAPs process can make key linkages between increasing resilience of sustainable agricultural livelihoods and ecosystem management and conservation.
