Scaling up Climate Ambition on Land Use and Agriculture through Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and National Adaptation Plans (NAP) (SCALA) supports transformative climate action in the land use and agriculture sectors to reduce GHG emissions and/or enhance removals, as well as strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate change in participant countries (12 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America). Its specific objective is for countries to have translated their NDC and/or NAP into actionable and transformative climate solutions in land use and agriculture with multi-stakeholder engagement. It emphasizes collaboration between the public and private sectors to drive implementation. This will be achieved through three outcomes:

  • Outcome 1: Information and assessments used by national stakeholders to identify and appraise transformative climate actions to advance NDC/NAP priorities in land -use and agriculture.
  • Outcome 2: Climate risk-informed land use and agriculture sector priorities integrated into national and sectoral planning, budgeting, and monitoring.
  • Outcome 3: Private sector engagement in climate action in land-use and agriculture increased.

The project taps into technical knowledge and experience of both agencies, working through the respective Regional Offices, Regional Centers of Expertise and Country Offices in support of country programming frameworks. Both agencies have substantial global, regional, and national initiatives which will be leveraged for knowledge exchange and complementary activities.

In Nepal, SCALA is implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock development (MoALD) with technical support from FAO and UNDP in Nepal. At the provincial and local levels, provincial agriculture ministry, agriculture knowledge centers, district livestock promotion centers, agriculture cooperatives, local dairy centers and famers’ associations constitute the major stakeholders. SCALA Nepal envisions  to enable the achievement of actionable AFOLU targets in the NDC implementation plan, and the agriculture and food security sector’s climate actions in the 2021 NAP through transformative climate solutions for rice, cattle, and selected commodities.
