Agricultural development projects often emphasize the need for climate change adaptation and mitigation in production. Yet upstream and downstream functions of agricultural value chains bear a similar importance for resilience of the agricultural system. Guidance for the use of adequate tools and at best a comprehensive approach can enhance the effectiveness of development projects.

The Task Force Climate-Smart Agricultural Value Chains of the Sector Network Rural Development (SNRD) Asia/ Pacific formed in February 2022 to fill the gap for the streamlined guidance. The Task Force has produced several products that can help project planning and implementation: A compendium of existing tools/methods/guides for climate change adaptation and mitigation in agri-food systems and an interactive product landscape that complements the compendium and gives a visual overview of and easy access to the tools as well as additional relevant documents.
