The indications for 'Addressing agriculture, forestry and fisheries in national adaptation plans,' as explained in a communiqué of that body circulated here, recommends that developing nations include this sector in their plans and make it more resilient.
They should also help the most vulnerable countries to access financing, such as the UN's Green Climate Fund, in addition to promoting decision-making and facilitating advances in technical capacities.
For Julia Wolf, FAO Natural Resources Officer and co-author of the guidelines, planning for medium and long-term adaptation is essential to achieving resilience to climate change and food security for future generations.
She noted that these indications addressed key issues, starting points, and steps while emphasizing the importance of agriculture in developing countries.
The agricultural sector, which includes crops, livestock, forestry, and fisheries, occupies a special place in the effort to keep global temperatures from rising by more than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, FAO press release highlights.
