Governments and other stakeholders working around climate change in Latin America and the Caribbean are increasingly aware of the importance of integrating the mitigation and adaptation with development agendas. The agricultural sector has proven to need this integration frequently. However, moving from intention to action in this issue requires the availability of planning methodologies to identify and prioritize actions that increase productivity while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increase climate change resilience.

This webinar, from our Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Platform (LEDS LAC) will present two tools developed by organizations from the region with that purpose:

    • The tool on Synergies between Adaptation and Mitigation (MAS), developed by CATIE as part of USAID’s regional climate change program
    • The framework for prioritizing investments in climate compatible sustainable agriculture (MP-ASAC), developed by CCAFS-CIAT.

Both presentations will include at least one practical application of the tool in the region.

The webinar will be held in Spanish. For more information about the webinar, click here. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org
