    Objective

    Agriculture is highly exposed to climate risks, and so climate hazards can have significant negative impacts on agricultural economies.

    The Rwandan government’s agriculture-led development agenda reduced the sensitivity of the sector and built adaptive capacity among its workforce but did little to diversify the economy. 

    Moderate increases in exposure to flood risk from capital investments were outweighed by reductions in sensitivity from productivity gains, soil conservation and irrigation.

    Approach

    The climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept reflects an ambition to improve the integration of agriculture development and climate responsiveness. It aims to achieve food security and broader development goals under a changing climate and increasing food demand. CSA initiatives sustainably increase productivity, enhance resilience, and reduce/remove greenhouse gases (GHGs), and require planning to address tradeoffs and synergies between these three pillars: productivity, adaptation, and mitigation.
