Summary

While the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are generally planned and implemented in silos, their intersectio­­n in the agriculture sectors highlights an opportunity for integrated implementation. To understand the degree of alignment between Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the 17 goals and 169 targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, FAO has developed a methodology for mapping climate change mitigation and adaptation measures (collectively referred to as “climate actions”) in the agriculture sectors. This methodological framework attempts to facilitate the identification of policy and investment entry-points in the agriculture sectors that can accelerate progress across both agendas in tandem. It aims to push national policy makers and decision makers, as well as international negotiators and global agenda setters, towards an integrated approach to climate action and sustainable development, particularly in the agriculture sectors, upon which 80 percent of the world’s poor and most vulnerable depend for their livelihoods.
