Metrics to measure progress towards climate-smart agriculture (CSA) goals

Published by CGIAR,

This Brochure (PDF) by CGIAR is about the Public access CSA Programing and Indicator Tool that supports investors and implementers in identifying common metrics and tracking the CSA related outcomes and impacts of their interventions. The tool is supported by a database of over 378 indicators gathered from international development agencies such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID), the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and revisited through a CSA lens to identify their relevance to its three pillars. The database has been further developed into a publicly accessible CSA programming and indicator tool. The tool proposes a shared framework for agricultural programmes to: 1) examine to what extent current or planned intervention(s) address each CSA pillar; 2) compare the scope and CSA intentionality among different project designs to make future programming more climate-smart, and 3) support the identification and selection of an appropriate set of indicators to measure and track CSA-related outcomes.

The tool can be downloaded here.
