Linking good agricultural practices and climate smart agriculture

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Recently, the concept of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) was introduced to position agriculture and food security in relation to climate change adaptation and mitigation. Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) with the aim to create cleaner and safer production systems and products has been around for a while. Because the goals of CSA and GAP ultimately need to be achieved by farmers it is logical to link and integrate CSA goals with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). This report provides some insight in how this can be done and uses cases to illustrate some of the issues.
