Agriculture is one of the most vulnerable areas of climate change. To alleviate some of the complex challenges posed by climate change and agriculture (including forests and fisheries), we must switch to the so-called “Climate Smart” or “Agriculture Smart Environment” (ASE). Smart agriculture is an approach aimed at improving the farming system. More efficient use of less land, water and inputs, in order to produce more food sustainably, along with the need for individuals to be more resilient to changes and shocks. Agriculture -smart Environment (ASE) is an approach that helps to guide actions needed to transform and reorient agricultural systems to effectively support development and ensure food security in a changing climate. The Agriculture -Smart Environment (ASE) Profiles bridge a knowledge product is a methodology for assessing a baseline on climate-smart agriculture at the national and sub-national that can guide climate smart investments and development. This abstract discusses the role of Climate-smart Environment to make agriculture more sustainable and climate-resilient and a viable source of livelihood and food security for millions of farmers in the country.
