This analytical document provides an overview on how the agriculture sectors have been included in the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and/or their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the UNFCCC. It outlines mitigation contributions with a particular focus on agriculture and land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF), vulnerabilities under climate change and priority areas and/or activities for adaptation in the agriculture sectors.

Furthermore, this report summarizes information provided in the INDCs/ NDCs on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA), mitigation-adaptation co-benefits and how countries have developed their INDCs and are planning to implement their NDCs. The aim of this analysis is to provide a basis for identifying priorities for international support for climate action in the agriculture sectors.
