The landscape of international climate action has changed considerably since FAO introduced the concept of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) at the Hague Conference on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change in 2010, and followed up with the publication of the first edition of the CSA Sourcebook in 2013. Most importantly, in 2015 the international community adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which encompasses the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and provides an unprecedented international framework for increasing the effectiveness of national actions and collective international efforts to achieve sustainable development.
