Perspective: The gap between intent and climate action in agriculture
This paper presents a framework based on four dimensions—intent, need, scope and readiness for implementing adaptation and mitigation in agriculture.
A global case study analysis based on the proposed framework shows that 61 countries (including key food producers) have high need for adaptation but have a mismatch between scope, intent and/or readiness.
The framework can be used to monitor and track periodically the NDC progress and identify where corrective actions are required.
