This sector note -which has just been finalized- provides detailed advice and practical examples on how to integrate - or "mainstream"- environment and climate change in agriculture, food security and rural development programmes
Agricultural production in vast regions of South East Asia will be lost in the coming decades as a result of flooding of extensive lowland landscapes. The main drivers of peatland destruction are palm oil and pulp for paper plantations that require drainage.
Agriculture is a sector especially sensitive to climate change. It also accounts for significant emissions and is, therefore, a priority for both adaptation and mitigation plans and actions at global, national and local levels.
