A good definition for climate smart agriculture is the one used in a the WB publication: Climate Smart Agriculture: A Call for Action. “Climate-smart agriculture seeks to increase sustainable productivity, strengthen farmers’ resilience, reduce agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration. It strengthens food security and delivers environmental benefits. Climate-smart agriculture includes proven practical techniques — such as mulching, intercropping, conservation agriculture, crop rotation, integrated crop-livestock management, agroforestry, improved grazing, and improved water management — and innovative practices such as better weather forecasting, more resilient food crops and risk insurance.” For more information please refer to: http://www.worldbank.org/content/dam/Worldbank/document/CSA_Brochure_web_WB.pdf. More information on Climate Smart Agriculture can also be found on FAO’s website.
