Climate-smart landscapes for promoting sustainability of Pacific Island agricultural systems

This project aims to use community management of agricultural landscapes to increase or protect environmental livelihoods from climate change.
South Pacific islands are vulnerable to climate change. Their geography exposes them to shocks and stresses, and their economies rely on agriculture. The region needs climate compatible agriculture to cope with climate change.
Climate-smart landscapes emphasise sustainable livelihoods, resilience to climate change, and environmental sustainability. Climate-smart landscapes for sustainable agriculture are a new concept in the South Pacific, and need to be promoted.
This project will help communities to develop adaptation pathways to agricultural practices so that landscape management becomes climate-smart. This will protect livelihoods from climate while preserving environmental sustainability.
