1.4.1 Food Security in NAPs

To join the session online, please follow the livestream link.

The agriculture and fisheries sectors are crucial for food security and livelihoods. In Asia and the Pacific observed changes in climate and climate variability are already posing risks to these sectors and the farmers, fisher folk and foresters that depend upon them. The eradication of poverty and food insecurity in the face of a changing climate will require efforts to build resilience in smallholder agriculture through the widespread adoption of sustainable land, water, fisheries and forestry management practices. Widespread adoption will require a supportive policy environment that enables sector stakeholders at all levels to better assess climate risk and plan and take action to adapt. It is with this in mind that FAO, UNDP and the German Government are supporting a number of countries in the region to better integrate the agriculture sectors into National Adaptation Plans and related plans and processes, inter alia under the Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through Nationally Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans (SCALA) programme (and its predecessor NAP-Ag).

This session aims to provide a space to learn about experiences to date with adaptation in the agriculture and fisheries sectors in the region, future adaptation priorities in these sectors and how the NAP can be used as a framework to scale up effective, sector-specific adaptation.
