Managing climate risk using climate-smart agriculture

Climate change alters the agriculture production conditions and food security of developing countries, increasing the frequency and depth of risk to agricultural production and incomes. Policy-makers need assistance in identifying risk management options in the agricultural sector that allow them to effectively respond to the climate risks they face, while maintaining and enhancing agricultural policy objectives. Climate-smart agricultural (CSA) approach was developed to provide this assistance and this brief highlights some of the key findings related to risk management from CSA case studies.
