Priority Framework for Action Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management in Agriculture

The Priority Framework for Action builds on the strengths and comparative advantage of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) and, at the same time, specific actions are proposed considering the existing gaps and weaknesses.

The Framework outlines 5 priority action areas: (i) Institutional and technical capacity for climate change adaptation and disaster risk management in agriculture; (ii) Assessment and monitoring of climate risks, vulnerabilities as well as enhancing early warning systems; (iii) Improving knowledge management, awareness raising and education on climate change, adaptation and disaster risk management; (iv) Reducing climate related risks and the underlying vulnerabilities by implementing technical options in agriculture and livestock; (v) Strengthening capacities and procedures for effective disaster preparedness, response and rehabilitation at all levels and integration of climate change adaptation interventions.
