Climate-Smart Agriculture: Success Stories from Farming Communities Around the World

The world’s climate is changing fast, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, no matter what measures are now taken. For agriculture, change will also be significant, as temperatures rise, rainfall patterns change and pests and diseases find new ranges posing new risks to food and farming. Until recently, agriculture has tended to be on the sidelines of discussions concerning human-induced climate change, and has generally been seen as the ‘victim’. There is now, however, a growing recognition of agriculture’s contribution to climate change, past and present, and of the means by which farming systems can adapt to cope with the changes, as well as the potential of agriculture to mitigate our climate impact. This recognition has led to the concept of 'climate-smart agriculture’.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) defines climate-smart agriculture as consisting of three main pillars:
• Sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes (food security);
• Adapting and building resilience to climate change (adaptation);
• Reducing and/or removing greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation), where possible.

Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 was adopted at the Third United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, held from 14 to 18 March 2015 in Sendai, Miyagi, Japan, which represented a unique opportunity for countries: 
(a) To adopt a concise, focused, forward-looking and action-oriented post 2015 framework for disaster risk reduction; 
(b) To complete the assessment and review of the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005–2015: Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters;
(c) To consider the experience gained through the regional and national strategies/ institutions and plans for disaster risk reduction and their recommendations, as well as relevant regional agreements for the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action; 
(d) To identify modalities of cooperation based on commitments to implement a post 2015 framework for disaster risk reduction; 
(e) To determine modalities for the periodic review of the implementation of a post 2015 framework for disaster risk reduction
