Tom Mitchell and Simon Maxwell outline CDKN’s definition of climate compatible development. This approach to development minimises the harm caused by climate impacts, while maximising the many human development opportunities presented by a low emissions, more resilient, future. Read more about how climate change is creating a new development landscape for policymakers.

Agri Lab: Findings from a MAPS workshop

Category: Briefs

Logo_MAPS-WebRGB-100x100

The agriculture sector is vital in defining a mitigation strategy given its contribution to GDP, employment, food security and poverty globally. Agriculture-related emissions contributions are significant in Chile, Colombia and Peru, however further research is required to better understand the mitigation potential. The mitigation potential needs to be understood in terms of the overall development plans within a country. The findings from this Agri Lab highlight the options and challenges for analysing mitigation actions in the agricultural sector including data requirements and the suitability of tools.
