The Sectoral Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan for the Agriculture Sector (Agriculture SASAP) 2018-2028 aims to facilitate the adoption and scaling up of climate-resilient agriculture in Saint Lucia. The Agriculture SASAP, funded with the support of the United States In-Country NAP Support Program, through the NAP Global Network, builds on previous efforts and projects, and is the product of an in-depth contextual analysis and search for potential effective solutions to the country’s agriculture-related climate challenges.
The Agriculture SASAP consists of 45 adaptation measures deemed critical for building climate-resilient agriculture systems in the country. The measures, endorsed by relevant stakeholders, offer solutions to information, technical, institutional, financial, regulatory and policy limitations hampering adaptation in the sector. In the SASAP, the adaptation measures are grouped under 14 strategic objectives and contribute to these four major expected outcomes:
- - Enhanced enabling environment for climate adaptation action in the agriculture sector
- - Enhanced nutrition, food availability, quality and security through adaptation in the agriculture sector
- - Strengthened partnerships for scaling up climate-resilient agriculture
- - Built adaptive capacity to climate variability and extremes in the agriculture sector
