This third volume (Volume 3) of the ASEAN Regional Guidelines for Promoting Climate-Smart
Agriculture (CSA) Practices serves as a complement to the earlier volumes, Volume 1 and Volume 2.
Thus, Volume 3 primarily aims to provide guidance on how ASEAN Member States (AMS) can promote the adoption and upscaling of CSA practices such as the ones presented in the ASEAN Guidelines. For this purpose, Volume 3 (1) provides assessment guidelines for prioritising the CSA approaches and (2) suggests principles for the promotion and adoption of CSA approaches among AMS.
These practical guides will help AMS in planning the scaling-up of climate change programmes for agriculture, land use and rural development. The aim is to proactively respond to the emerging impacts of climate change on social, environmental and economic aspects of food security (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2014).
The guideline has been endorsed at the 44th ASEAN Ministers on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF) meeting on October 2022 and is available at the ASEAN Secretariat website at this link.
