Agriculture is one of the sectors most vulnerable to climate change and extreme weather events, so managing climate risks across agricultural investment projects is fundamental. The new guidance document, Climate resilient practices: typology and guiding material for climate risk screening, is a reference manual to support FAO’s climate risk screening process. The manual includes a compendium of practices and measures organized by agricultural sectors and related areas of action: cropping, livestock, forest systems and fisheries, aquaculture and international waters; biodiversity; food value chains and governance.
