Climate-Smart Agriculture in Belize : Identifying Investment Priorities - CSA Prioritization Framework (Inglês)

Similar to many low-lying coastal nations, Belize is vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Over time, these effects are likely to include increased variability in the amount and seasonal distribution of rainfall, increased frequency and intensity of tropical storms, rising sea levels, and increased temperature and droughts. All of these will directly affect agricultural production systems, fisheries ecosystems, and other economic sectors. The vulnerability of Belize’s agricultural sector to climate change highlights the importance of promoting the adoption of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practices. CSA practices enable farmers to increase productivity and production sustainably. At the same time, CSA practices increase farmers’ capacity to contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation. This document presents a multi-criteria framework for identifying and prioritizing CSA practices for Belize. The prioritization framework can help policymakers target scarce CSA investment resources more effectively.
