Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management in Agriculture Priority Framework for Action 2011 – 2020
PDF File Size: 579 KB | Download   
In response to the request from the Government of Nepal, FAO assisted the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) to “strengthen the capacities for climate risk management and disaster preparedness in the agricultural sector” through a Technical Cooperation Project (TCP/NEP/3201 (D)) and a FAO/UNDP Joint programme (UNJP/NEP/005/UNJ. The project facilitated several national consultations and provided technical support to identify the priorities and prepare a 10 year Priority Framework for Action (PFA). The Priority Framework for Action (PFA) draws the actions from the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) and National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM). The field experiences through the district and community level interventions, outcomes from the project components (data base management, vulnerability and risk mapping, farmers support services as well as climate/ weather and early warning information provision) contributed heavily to formulate this PFA. 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. Moreover, the Priority Framework of Action lays out activities for achieving the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) and several other climate change related priorities outlined in the first national communication to UNFCCC and NAPA. The PFA considers an integrated approach by considering short-term (disaster response), short tomedium-term (Disaster Risk Reduction) and medium to long-term (climate change adaptation) priorities.
