Support Programme on Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through NDCs and National Adaptation Plans (SCALA)

As of: October 2020

Objective and activities

With climate change threatening the agriculture sectors, livelihoods and food security, there is an urgent need for scaled action to cope with climate-related impacts. SCALA is a programme supporting at least 12 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America from 2020-2025 to build adaptive capacity and to implement low emission priorities in agriculture and land use. Country support will include strengthening policies, adopt innovative approaches and remove key barriers related to information gaps, governance, finance, gender mainstreaming and integrated monitoring and reporting. To achieve this shift, the programme will harness strong engagement from the private sector and key national institutions. Through SCALA, countries will develop their capacity to own and lead the process to meet the targets set out in their National Adaptation Plans and Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement (PA) and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals./
