GACSA is an inclusive, voluntary and action-oriented multi-stakeholder platform on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA).
Its vision is to improve food security, nutrition and resilience in the face of climate change. GACSA aims to catalyse and help create transformational partnerships to encourage actions that reflect an integrated approach to the three pillars of CSA.
GACSA fosters knowledge learning, sharing, partnership building, while also providing a space for dialogue and debate.
GACSA works towards three aspirational outcomes to:
- Improve farmers’ agricultural productivity and incomes in a sustainable way;
- Build farmers’ resilience to extreme weather and changing climate;
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with agriculture, when possible.
Context specific priorities and solutions need to be aligned with national policies and priorities.
GACSA aims to catalyze and help create transformational partnerships to encourage the three pillars of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) – productivity, adaptation and mitigation.
The mission of the Alliance is to address the challenges facing food security and agriculture by tapping the wealth and diversity of resources, knowledge, information and expertise, from and between its members, in order to stimulate concrete initiatives at all levels.
It provides a forum for those who work on climate-smart agriculture to share and exchange experiences, information and views on issues that need immediate attention what works and what does not when adapting to climate change and mitigating green house gases in the agriculture sector.
