This course provides practical knowledge about how climate change is likely to impact agriculture, food production and security, and what actions can be taken to increase productivity, and build resilience to mitigate the negative impacts of climate change, as well as contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through practicing climate-smart agriculture, both in policies and practices.

This course is not intended to be a “complete guide” to climate-smart agriculture. It focuses on a few aspects relating to the triple-win nature of agriculture and good landscape management, through managing land and water, illustrating “how-to” achieve them with practical examples. It draws primarily from the World Bank knowledge base through operations, and formulation and implementation of development projects and policies.


Target Audience:
Leaders, policy analysts, professionals and practitioners who work on agricultural production, land and agricultural water issues
