Climate-smart agriculture and the Sustainable Development Goals: Mapping interlinkages, synergies and trade-offs and guidelines for integrated implementation
Shereen D’Souza and Julian Schnetzer
This publication aims to unfold the potential of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is divided in two main parts. In the first part, it assesses and maps the potential synergies and trade-offs between the three pillars of CSA and SDG targets. The second part provides guidance on how to foster the integration of CSA with countries’ efforts to achieve the SDGs throughout the implementation steps of CSA. The guidelines also take into account the interlinked nature of SDGs and countries’ commitments to climate action, in particular the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
