Project description

The Project will provide technical assistance to the targeted countries (to be determined in consultation with the Donor) in the following areas:a) Enhanced capacity to identify and appraise innovative and transformative climate-sensitive agriculture and land use actions into NDCs;b) Strengthened national and sectoral plans and budgets to integrate agriculture and land use sectors' climate-related priorities;c) Increased climate action in agriculture and land use through stronger mobilization of private sector engagement and finance.d) The programme will provide technical support to countries in overcoming barriers related to climate risk information, climate governance and policy de-risking, and harness stronger engagement from the private sector for climate action. This programme will work through a whole-of-government response to accelerating climate action and enhancing NDC ambition in the food and agriculture systems.
