This policy has been developed to guide investments and implementation of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) activities guaranteeing productivity and food security, while addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation. The strategy identifies four broad strategic areas:
-Adaptation and building resilience by addressing vulnerability due to changes in rainfall and temperature, extreme weather events and unsustainable land/water management and utilization;
-Mitigation of GHG’s emissions from key and minor sources in agriculture sector;
-Establishment of an enabling policy, legal and institutional framework for effective implementation of CSA; and
-Minimizing effects of underlying cross cutting issues such as human resource capacity and finance which would potentially constrain realization of CSA objectivities.
