    One of the impacts of climate change is an increase in the incidence, severity and unpredictability of natural disasters. This e-learning course explains how livelihoods and tenure rights are affected by natural disasters, and illustrates how responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forests can support a disaster management process through improved prevention, mitigation, preparedness, emergency response, and recovery and reconstruction.

    Duration:

    2 hours

    Publication Date:

    March 2015

    Audience

    The curriculum primarily addresses "change agents" - i.e. people who can have a direct impact by introducing changes in how tenure is governed. They include national policy makers and administrators, surveyors, trainers, legal support providers, civil society and non-governmental organizations, advocacy, control and monitoring professionals.

    Content

    The course consists of 3 lessons, of approximately 40 to 45 minutes duration each:

    • Lesson 1 Responsible governance of tenure and natural disasters
    • Lesson 2 Addressing tenure issues in the pre-disaster period
    • Lesson 3 Addressing tenure issues in the post-disaster period

    This short 35-minute module addresses the basic terms and concepts relating to food and nutrition, malnutrition, food security and livelihoods. By the end of this module, you will be able to define and differentiate these key concepts and understand the different situations that they encompass. Understanding these concepts is indeed very important in order to be able to assess the nutrition situation, to design and implement programmes, investments and policies that address nutrition problems (also called "nutrition-sensitive"), and to evaluate the nutritional outcomes of programmes, investments and policies.

    The online version of this course is a pre-release version. Please be aware that course progress will be lost when changing computer or browser.

    Background

    Since 2007, FAO has piloted in Uganda, together with its partners, a community-driven approach, called “Caisses de Résilience” (CdR), which reflects a new way of thinking for FAO’s resilience agenda. The approach promotes an integrated way of programming by working simultaneously on three mutually reinforcing dimensions: technical, financial and social. The objective is to engage and empower rural smallholders to leverage their existing capacities to better manage risks and to seize local opportunities.

    The webinar presents the basic concepts of the 'Caisses de résilience' and highlight the adaptability of this approach in order to tailor resilience-building to varying contexts and challenges, from protracted crisis to natural hazards. It gives concrete examples of implementation and scaling-up in a number of African countries, from Uganda to Central African Republic, Liberia, Malawi, Mali and Chad, and recently also in Burundi, Guinea Bissau, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Democratic Republic of Congo. The session also illustrates how the approach was adapted in 2013 in Honduras and Guatemala to address the natural hazards context of the Dry Corridor area in Central America with an initiative called “Fondos Mutuos de Contingencia (FMC)” (or Community Contingency Funds, CCFs).- See more at: http://www.fsincop.net/news-events/detail/en/c/421951/#sthash.qhPQKlQn.dpuf

    In this webinar, experts from the Latin American and Caribbean Climate Finance Group (GFLAC), UNDP and the National Planning Department of Colombia, will share insights and lessons learned from a study conducted by the joint UNDP-FAO NAP-Ag Programme (NAP-Ag) in partnership with GFLAC on tracking domestic climate finance. The study and webinar sessions will focus on adaptation climate financial flows in six countries: Colombia, Guatemala, Kenya, Nepal, The Philippines and Zambia.

    Climate finance is a crucial element for the implementation of more effective climate actions and the goals outlined by the Paris Agreement and 2030 Agenda. In order to understand the financing gaps and the financial opportunities available to developing countries to fund climate resiliency efforts, it is important to understand the levels of funding available through global climate funds and domestic sources. In an effort to increase the transparency of climate finances, countries worldwide are starting to track both domestic and international finance flows. This is an important step to comply with the Paris Agreement’s Transparency Initiative.

    This webinar is presented through the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag), an initiative jointly led by UNDP and FAO, with funding from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.

    Webinar Objectives

    • Present the results of the study conducted by the NAP-Ag Programme regarding domestic climate finance, particularly adaptation climate flows in six countries: Colombia, Guatemala, Kenya, Nepal, The Philippines and Zambia.
    • Discuss the challenges and the lessons learned in this study to provide inputs and recommendations for the actual process of the negotiation under UNFCCC.
    • Receive inputs from participants to further strengthen the results and support the work related to tracking climate finance at the national level.

    This webinar examined the linkages between natural resource management, investment in resilient agricultural livelihoods and contributions to peacebuilding and sustaining peace. Interventions supporting food security and nutrition play a critical role in protecting and saving lives and livelihoods and in strengthening resilience in conflict-affected situations. However, interventions supporting livelihoods, particularly those focused on natural resource management, can also play an important role in sustaining peace and in directly preventing conflict, through a number of different pathways.

    Some of these pathways are explored in the 2017 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report on ‘Building Resilience for Peace and Food Security’, and are referenced in the 2015 CFS Framework For Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crises (CFS-FFA).

    This webinar explored how conflict-sensitive approaches to natural resource access and use can make a contribution to sustaining peace, and how investments in building resilience can help reduce specific conflict drivers. The event drew on and was illustrated by examples from:

    • SIPRI’s perspectives on climate security and management of natural resource conflicts, focusing on laying the foundations for socially, economically and politically resilient peace;
    • Mercy Corps/pact’s experience on natural resource sharing agreements between the Dodoth and Turkana in Uganda to strengthen communities’ capacities to manage interethnic conflicts; and
    • FAO’s work on natural resource access and use between Misseriya and Dinka Ngok communities through a multi-sector livelihood project in the contested Abyei Administrative Area.

    Speakers:

    • Florian Krampe, Researcher, SIPRI's Climate Change and Risk Project, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)
    • Sarah Gibbons, Chief of Party, PEACE III program, Pact Kenya
    • Julius Jackson, Technical Officer (Protracted Crises), FAO

    The Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans webinar on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and National Adaptation Planning: Opportunities for the Agricultural Sectors will provide an overview of how EbA can be effectively integrated into agriculture sectors’ adaptation strategies and broader national adaptation planning processes. The webinar will focus on mainstreaming EbA in the formulation and implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). Global presentations and a presentation from Thailand (a partner country in the NAP-Ag programme) will outline opportunities, experiences and approaches in mainstreaming EbA into adaptation policy planning processes and strategies at different scales. This webinar complements the webinar series on Scaling up of Adaptation in the Agricultural Sectors (SAAS), which aims to highlight methods and tools to support the implementation of ecosystem-based adaptation in the agriculture sectors.

    The joint UNDP-FAO Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) Programme supports partner countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures for the agricultural sectors into relevant national planning and budgeting processes. The programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), through its International Climate Initiative (IKI).
