This working paper synthesizes knowledge within CGIAR on adaptation measures in agricultural systems, for the benefit of parties and observers preparing submissions to the UNFCCC SBSTA.

This report is intended to complement the 2011 CCAFS publication “State of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Efforts for Agriculture in Nepal” (Wang 2011). It provides relevant updates regarding the policies, projects, or initiatives introduced therein, and an assessment of the quickly evolving political scenario.

Climate finance provides an opportunity to facilitate the adoption of agricultural practices that support climate mitigation and adaptation.
