CSAIP of Côte d'Ivoire
Climate change threatens to have a significant impact on Côte d'Ivoire's agricultural sector, which is at the heart of the country's economic productivity and food security.
Côte d'Ivoire is a signatory to the Paris agreement of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and has submitted its National Determined Contributions (NDCs), committing to take action on both adaptation to climate change and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Côte d'Ivoire is by far a minor emitter of greenhouse gases.
This document presents a Climate Smart Agriculture Investment Plan for Côte d'Ivoire (CSAIP), developed with support from the AAA initiative and the World Bank, and technical assistance from the CGIAR's Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) research program.
The plan prioritized a set of 12 investments and key Climate Smart Agriculture actions needed to boost crop resilience and improve yields for more than 2.2 million beneficiaries and their families by helping them adapt to climate change.
As a member of the AAA initiative and also committed to meeting its NDC commitments, Côte d'Ivoire now has an investment plan that includes a set of specific smart climate projects that improve productivity, build resilience to climate change and, where appropriate, reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the agricultural sector.
This document provides an investment plan for climate-smart agriculture (CSAIP) in Mali, developed with support from the AAA Initiative and the World Bank, and technical assistance from the International Center for Tropical Agriculture, the World Agroforestry Centre and the CGIAR's research program on agriculture, climate change and food security (CCAFS). It identifies specific interventions that define actions on the ground that are consistent with the NDCs and Mali's national agricultural strategy, and that can be funded by public and private sector partners.
The plan includes a set of 12 key CSAIP investments for Mali that have been developed with the active participation of stakeholders and expert input to strengthen crop
resilience and improve yields for more than 1.8 million beneficiaries and their families, helping them adapt to climate change.
As a member of the AAA initiative, which is also committed to meeting its NDC commitments, Mali now has an investment plan that includes a set of specific climate-smart projects that improve productivity, build resilience to climate change and, where appropriate, reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the agricultural sector.
CSAIP provides the context and evidence for the importance of these projects, and details how they can be economically beneficial and provide food security for the people of Mali.
Morocco's climate is changing as temperatures rises, rainfall decreases, and droughts become more frequent.Climate change is putting increasing pressure on Morocco's agriculture, water, and land resources, with strong impacts on agricultural production.CSAIP for Morocco is aligned with the developments of climate-smart Moroccan agriculture and is based on a review of the achievements of the Green Morocco Plan (GMP), as well as analytical work.
It was designed to :
Identify and prioritize climate-smart investment opportunities based on current strategies;
establish a shortlist of the socio-economically most relevant projects and the most mature for implementation ;
Identify potential sources of funding;
Develop a monitoring and evaluation system, including learning by doing and sharing experiences.
The development of the Morocco CSAIP also took into consideration a number of climate-related strategic documents, including a report on Nnationally Ddetermined Ccontributions (NDCs) with nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) and adaptation programs. A Lowest Emissions Development Strategy (LEDS) and a National Adaptation Action Plan (NAPA) are also being finalized.
CSAIP provides a platform for additional funding from public and private sources such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Adaptation Fund and development partners.
It comprises three categories of projects : - Ongoing projects that may be eligible for extension in a second phase, with an increased focus on resilience; - New projects with a strong focus on resilience, as identified by relevant agencies; - Stand-alone capacity building projects, including, but not limited to, those of importance to increase the effectiveness of other key programs or to address bridge knowledge gaps.
