Summary There are a numbers of United Nations Framework Conventions on Climate Change (UNFCCC) related commitments through which SIDS have prioritized the needs to address the impacts of climate change. However, evidences show that there are still gaps and significant opportunities to enhance the response to climate change in agricultural sectors (includes crops, livestock, fisheries and forestry). For example, based on UNFCCC decision 1/CP.19, countries have voluntarily submitted their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs), and analysis shows the need for technical support in the areas of adaptation, mitigation and financing. Some of the explicit needs prioritized in INDCs include strengthening of climate change work especially on mainstreaming into sectoral plans, policies, support to adaptation/mitigation planning processes, implementation of mitigation and adaptation practices and relevant capacity development with in a broader objective of food security and nutrition.
