Climate-smart land use

Climate-Smart Agriculture addresses the mitigation of the environmental and climate impact of agricultural activity on the one hand, and on the other focuses on the development of food production methods and cropping systems that are well-adapted to prevent adverse effects of changing climate conditions. Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is an increasingly appreciated approach that aims at ensuring food security, while at the same time reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the resilience of agricultural systems to climate change.
