Structural Ricardian Analysis of South-East Asian Agriculture

This paper examines the impact of climate change on the net revenue (NR) of farmers from Bangladesh, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. Two Ricardian models are estimated: (1) a traditional Ricardian model of the impact of climate change on annual farm NR and (2) a structural Ricardian model that first estimates the number of growing seasons and then the net revenue per season. The traditional model reveals annual NR is sensitive to autumn and summer climate variables. The seasonal effects offset each other so that uniform marginal effects are insignificant.

Climate Change Adaptation in the Arab States

The purpose of this publication is to detail lessons learned from UNDP’s Climate Change Adaptation work and achievements in the Arab region on achieving sustainable and lasting results. Some lessons include building local capacity at all levels to ensure a project’s long-term viability, decentralizing infrastructure management, implicating community-based organizations, and promoting resilience of vulnerable populations through livelihood diversification.

Gender and disaster risk reduction in Europe and Central Asia

This guide is designed for facilitators and trainers working to incorporate gender perspectives in disaster risk reduction programmes and initiatives. It is meant to assist workshop participants – including practitioners and officials from the United Nations, national governments, civil society organizations, and other institutions – in gaining an understanding of the gendered impact of disasters. 

Advancing on monitoring and evaluation for adaptation in the agriculture sectors

As the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation at the national level is becoming ever more important, a number of countries have built their own M&E frameworks, with others stating their intention do so in the near future. This document provides an overview of the potential steps needed in designing an adaptation M&E framework and plan for the agriculture sectors.

Cost-benefit analysis for climate change adaptation policies and investments in agriculture

This briefing note illustrates the role and logic of Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) in the evaluation of climate change adaptation policies and projects in the agricultural sector and describes the main analytical steps for conducting it, providing practical examples. The note describes the standard CBA methodology but highlights the peculiarities related to its implementation in the context of climate change adaptation in agriculture. It is a knowledge product on CBA within the Integrating agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP–Ag) Programme.

Gender and adaptation planning in the agriculture sectors: The case of Uganda

This case study chronicles Uganda’s experiences developing a gender‑responsive National Adaptation Plan for the Agricultural Sector (NAP-Ag) and related capacity development for gender-responsive planning, budgeting and policy formulation. Lessons learned from these endeavors can provide insights for other countries who are seeking, like Uganda, to align NAP or agricultural sector NAP efforts with national goals as well as the Paris Agreement (Article 7.5), which mandates gender-responsive adaptation actions and capacity-building activities.

Inception Report - NAP-Ag Zambia

26 July 2016

The FAO Representative welcomed all to the inception workshop. He stated that the National Adaptation Plans aim to reduce the vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, by building adaptive capacity and resilience. He further stated that the NAPs also seek to facilitate the integration of climate change adaptation into new and relevant policies programmes and activities with special reference to development planning processes and strategies within all sectors and at different levels.

Inception Report - NAP-Ag Uruguay

The goal of the workshop is to launch the project and the set the scene for the NAP-Ag process. Public and private organizations from all agricultural sectors are invited to participate in this event. The work will be successful if the participating institutions and organizations take ownership of the process and internalize it in the planning management. The MGAP has defined adaptation to climate change and variability as one of its main policies.
