This GGGWeek2021’s session focused on climate-smart agriculture (CSA), an approach for transforming and reorienting agricultural systems to support food security under the dynamic realities of climate change. CSA underlines the importance of building evidence to identify viable options, value propositions and necessary enabling environments for effective implementation. Unfortunately, there is a major gap in the evidence base concerning barriers to the adoption of agricultural practices that respond to climate change and measures of overcoming these barriers. Panelists and presenters highlighted examples of solutions and best practices while undertaking in-depth discussion debate on how to mainstream CSA to transform a country’s agriculture sector into a more productive, climate-resilient, and low-emissions sector.
