DFID has recognised a need to provide guidance to country offices (CO) on what actions are needed to address the predicted impacts (both negative and positive) of climate change on agriculture and the potential adaptation measures. There is a need to establish what expert, evidence-based programme and policy guidance already exists, its applicability to DFID and its overall quality. This will establish whether there is a need to produce a separate and tailored Topic Guide to assist CO’s in designing and managing programmes, and inform the development of specific Future Fit guidance on food and agriculture.

This report is the results of a desk based study that reviewed 14 examples of guidance on agriculture and climate adaptation and was commissioned to help inform whether a new Topic Guide would be relevant and useful for DFID.

This report has been produced by the Global Climate Adaptation Partnership with the assistance of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) contracted through the Climate, Environment, Infrastructure and Livelihoods Professional Evidence and Applied Knowledge Services (CEIL PEAKS) programme, jointly managed by HTSPE Limited and IMC Worldwide Limited. Some of the material draws upon earlier work by the Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (citations are provided in the text).
