Message 7: Financing for both mitigation and adaptation must be part of climate change policies. Recent developments are positive: improvements in the Global Environment Facility’s strategy and an increase in financing stemming from ‘fast start’ finance are helping increase funding towards climate-smart agriculture. But more needs to be done. It is essential that the new Green Climate Fund (GCF) provides stable, long-term support to adaptation and mitigation in agriculture, with specific efforts targeted at women farmers and youth in agriculture.
This section includes farmers’ quotes in support of key message 7. The quotes will be in text, sound or video format.
